Why I Chose CHaD
“I am very excited to be joining CHaD! I was interested in this program for many reasons. Most importantly, I had great interactions with the residents and staff both at the resident dinner and interview day. I felt like they were exceptional people I would enjoy working with as well as be challenged by. This environment would set me up to become a great pediatrician. Secondly, I have family in New Hampshire who I was looking forward to moving back closer to. Thirdly, the area is lovely, and has many of the hobbies my husband and I enjoy doing (hiking, skiing, kayaking, etc.)”

Why I Chose CHaD
“I chose CHaD pediatrics because the small size of the program allows a close-knit resident group and individualized support of faculty. I felt a real diversity in the people at the program, brought together by the academic institution, and was impressed by how invested the faculty was in their residents. I am excited to make a difference early in my patients’ lives that will set them up for success later on. Taking care of kids provides a fulfillment that I didn’t find in other specialties.”

Why I Chose CHaD
“I love how CHaD provides a great balance between rigorous academic expectations, and extremely personable and individualized mentorship. There are so many resources through Dartmouth, and I quickly resonated with the program’s passion for advocacy and research. Our smaller size is one of my favorite things, which allows for early autonomy and exposure to subspecialties without the high volume of fellows. This also creates a sense of family between co-interns and staff, and everyone is genuinely kind and supportive!”

Why I Chose CHaD
“Everyone is just so nice! I had to do a remote interview and got to know the program long distance, but really did get a feel that everyone is looking out for you both as a resident and a person. Then, when I got here, it turns out I was right! The small resident class sizes really give you the opportunity to get to know your fellow residents and the faculty and be provided with more independence and autonomy, but without ever feeling like you don’t have a support net. Also, because of the smaller class size, you get more of an opportunity for more involvement in patient care like doing procedures or becoming more familiar with behind the scenes stuff if you’re interested in doing more. As far as doing things outside work, there are SO many opportunities to do things outdoors and in the area throughout the entire year. National parks to hike, mountains to ski, rivers to swim and kayak, and really beautiful parks to just enjoy.”
