Staff Fellow, Wilderness and Austere Medicine



Wilderness and Austere Medicine Fellowship

As one of the only tertiary medical centers in a rural, mountainous region, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center provides an ideal setting for wilderness and austere medical training. Our fellows are ideally situated to make a lasting impact on the public health and safety of patients in austere settings for our local community, the greater New England region, and the world. The fellowship is a rigorous and enriching year-long experience designed to create outstanding clinical skills and develop the fellow’s leadership capacity. Our fellows will have the opportunity to provide medical direction to many of the wilderness oriented organizations in our region including the Appalachian Mountain Club, the Dartmouth Outing Club, the Dartmouth Skiway, and the Upper Valley Wilderness Response team which will provide them with the foundation for a career in wilderness medicine leadership positions. The training will incorporate a strong prehospital experience with our HEMS and EMS faculty, hands on wilderness medical and rescue training, US training for austere settings, academic style didactics, research, teaching, and technical training in outdoor adventure activities. The fellow will come away from this year an expert in wilderness medicine and rescue - with a diverse array of skills and contacts that will have the potential to provide a lifetime of opportunities to practice medicine in wild, exciting and often exotic locations. In addition to this varied training, the fellow will have the option of pursuing specific sub-specialty areas in which he or she may be particularly interested such as mountain medicine, international medicine, rural health, telemedicine, shipboard medicine, or search and rescue and will have protected time and funding to pursue field work in these areas of interest.

This is a full- time position, working .55 FTE clinically as an Emergency Medicine attending and .45 FTE as a fellow.
