The Department of Medicine at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) is searching for a dynamic, experienced, future-oriented academic Rheumatologist to become the new Chief of the Section of Rheumatology. The new Section Chief will lead Rheumatology s ambulatory clinical operations, which provide a variety of outstanding ambulatory services at Dartmouth-Hitchcock in Lebanon, NH. As the only academic medical center in New Hampshire, providers in the Section of Rheumatology strive to use evidence-based therapies for the clinical care of patients with rheumatic diseases. Teaching and research are core parts of our mission and we are engaged in teaching fellows. We have a robust clinical trials program and we also perform basic science research.
