Worth going when? For an interview? For residency? If you are seriously interested in a program it is always worth going for an interview. If it's for residency then hopefully you have gone on an interview and would know if you like it. It's a small program but they do care about teaching and they have a good variety of specimen. I think they have had trouble attracting good AMG residents in the past, I don't know if that is still true or not. It's pretty rural, one of the most rural path programs out there, but it's a major medical center.
According to my medical school classmate who went there for his neurology residency & fellowship, it's very rural. We had a 3-month required rural medicine rotation in school. The places we were sent were more "urban" than Lebanon. (I think that's where Dartmouth is located.) Boston is the closest major city, & it's 2 hours away.
As w/ any place in the Northeast, the weather can also get pretty bad. I guess that's happening now.
My friend couldn't wait to leave. Surprisingly, he went to Minnestoa. While he's in a bigger city, I don't think the weather's any better.
I interviewed there last year and loved it. BEAUTIFUL area. All the residents I met were AMGs and seemed like good residents. The faculty I met seemed good. I thought the chairman was odd but I think they have a different chair now. The recent graduates had gotten good fellowships.
