Pediatric Residency

The pediatric residency program at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD) is a comprehensive, fully accredited three-year training program with broad inpatient and outpatient experiences. At the core of our program is a strong focus on high-value, family-centered care. Faculty and residents enjoy the small-town and rural communities throughout New Hampshire and Vermont in which they practice and live.

CHaD is part of Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. CHaD is the only tertiary facility for children in New Hampshire.

We believe that general pediatrics is a foundational part of providing comprehensive care in any setting. We foster the ability to manage complex care, the courage to tolerate uncertainty, and the moral clarity to engage in advocacy. We hold trainees accountable to standards of excellence, entrusting each individual with increasing autonomy only when she or he demonstrates competence and ownership.

Program aims

  • To advance individual and program knowledge and skills.
  • To provide high-value, family-centered care to support clinical excellence across care settings.
  • To advocate for patients, the profession and society.
