A founding member of the Northern New England Regional Program in Pediatric Cardiology with Boston Children’s Hospital and the University of Vermont Children’s Hospital, the Section provides comprehensive care for infants, children and adolescents with cardiovascular conditions across the state of New Hampshire and eastern Vermont with faculty based both at DHMC and D-H Manchester. It is also expanding an adult congenital heart program in conjunction with the D-H Heart & Vascular Center.
Academic opportunities across Dartmouth's campuses include world-class traditional biomedical research, global health initiatives, and renowned leadership in quality improvement, outcome, and healthcare delivery sciences at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.
The successful candidate will have demonstrated significant leadership, organizational and mentoring skills and a record of significant scholarly achievement. This individual must be board certified in Pediatric Cardiology and qualify for academic appointment at the medical school at a rank commensurate with experience and academic portfolio.
