Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center


Program Vision is to produce clinically outstanding emergency medicine physicians who can practice effectively in any ED setting from inner city to suburban to rural.

This unique spectrum of experiences includes inner city trauma at Maryland Shock Trauma, urban pediatric emergency medicine in Manchester, tertiary care at Dartmouth, rural emergency medicine at DH-Keene, and exposure to emergency medicine at critical access hospitals via the DHART helicopter. Their Emergency Medicine faculty is highly devoted to teaching with unique interest and expertise in resuscitation, sepsis, EMS, rural emergency medicine, telemedicine, international emergency medicine, wilderness medicine, ultrasound, informatics, quality improvement and health care delivery science. In addition, two thirds of their faculty have additional graduate degrees and/or fellowship training.
