Program Introduction for Interviewing Fellows
The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health (D-HH) is New Hampshire’s only academic health system and the state’s largest private employer, serving a population of 1.9 million across northern New England. D-H provides access to more than 1,800 providers in almost every area of medicine, delivering care at its flagship hospital, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC). DHMC was named in 2020 as the #1 hospital in New Hampshire by U.S. News & World Report, and recognized for high performance in 9 clinical specialties, procedures, and conditions.
DHMC is located in Lebanon, NH, at the central western border of New Hampshire, adjacent to Vermont. We see patients from New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, New York and Maine. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health has a network of member hospitals and clinics.
Provider payment model
- Across Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H), providers are not paid on collections.
- We do not have to ask patients what kind of insurance they have to figure out what clinic to schedule them in.
- The residents and fellows see patients in the same clinic as attending physicians.

Thoughts on her Dartmouth-Hitchcock Sleep Fellowship:
"I thoroughly enjoyed my time during Sleep fellowship at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. There were plenty of opportunity to see the full range of sleep pathologies including sleep disordered breathing, parasomnias, circadian rhythm disorders, sleep-related movement disorders, insomnia, and hypersomnolence disorders such as narcolepsy. It was very clear that my education and learning was a top priority. I also completed a research project on OSA and influenza that I am proud of and presented a poster at the annual AASM Sleep conference. I learned a lot and felt very well prepared for the next step in my career after fellowship; as a full time Sleep physician seeing both adults and children at another academic institution.
On my days off, I had opportunities for excellent outdoor activities including snowboarding at the nearby world-class ski resorts in the winter and hiking in the breathtaking, Instagram-worthy, New Hampshire mountains during spring and summer.'"
