Resident Well-Being

Resident well-being is of paramount importance to Dartmouth-Hitchcock, our Graduate Medical Education Office, and our Pediatric Residency Program. Residents are encouraged to lead healthy lives and make healthy choices that support them in their personal and professional growth. Our program, along with Dartmouth-Hitchcock, offers many excellent resources for residents (and often family members too) to support their well-being.
