The Department of Psychiatry’s Educational Programs prepare trainees for the challenges of contemporary behavioral health. Our curriculum is unique. Faculty are assigned to multidisciplinary teams and integrated with primary care.
We teach a wide variety of clinical evaluation methods and interventions, without any single therapeutic regimen holding preeminence. We also teach the problem-solving approaches that help a clinician choose from the most appropriate evidence-based techniques and methodologies.
A compelling reason to come to Dartmouth-Hitchcock to train is because of the tight linkage between academic thinking and public sector care. With our presence both training residents and delivering care to a varied patient population across the State of New Hampshire in public clinics, through Dartmouth-Hitchcock Psychiatric Associates in Lebanon, New Hampshire, and at the U.S. Veterans Affairs Medical Center across the river in nearby White River Junction, Vermont, we are proud to promote this impressive and distinguishing factor of our Department of Psychiatry.
We emphasize continuity, collaboration, and cost-effectiveness. Residents work in tandem with faculty on every service. This closeness between faculty and residents forms the core of the Dartmouth education.
