With a history extending more than 125 years, Cheshire Medical Center, a member of Dartmouth Health, plays a unique and essential role in the beautiful Monadnock Region of New Hampshire. By serving our neighbors responsibly and compassionately, we honor our legacy every day.

Coming soon!

We’re thrilled to announce a new milestone as we launch our community-based Family Medicine Residency program. Pending ACGME approval in Spring 2023, we plan to welcome its first six residents in 2024 for a total of 18 residents by 2027.

Cultivating excellence in the next generation of Family Medicine providers

Our graduate medical education program aims to support the professional development and personal growth of compassionate physicians who will advance the health of the individuals and communities they serve with expertise, passion, teamwork, respect, and a commitment to quality and equity.

The residency will be grounded in our vision of a caring educational community that trains graduate physicians who will serve all patients with high-quality, patient-centered medical care and collaborate across disciplines to meet the broader health needs of the community.

The practice will strive to meet our community's needs, including caring for marginalized individuals, and is supported by Cheshire's robust Center for Population Health. The program will have a special emphasis on the care of the rural LGBTQIA community.

Living in New Hampshire

The Monadnock Region of New Hampshire, named for the most climbed mountain in America and alive with the arts, is a mere half-hour drive from both Vermont and Massachusetts. However, our state offers a plethora of landscapes and activities:

"There are endless adventures waiting for you, and the best part is, it’s all close by! New Hampshire has a backyard vibe you’ll be pressed to find anywhere else. Climb a scenic mountain in the morning, and kayak a river or surf the seacoast at sunset. Feel the rush as you swoop past the trees on a zipline canopy tour, or roar through the woods on an ATV. New Hampshire is the place to be if you’re looking for thrilling and memorable experiences that feel like they’re in your own backyard!"  - Visit New Hampshire website
