Dartmouth-Hitchcock Board of Trustees

The Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H) Board of Trustees is a dedicated group of individuals who work diligently to ensure that Dartmouth-Hitchcock is well-positioned to advance health and to achieve the healthiest population possible in our region and beyond.

The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Board of Trustees consists of public trustees, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic physician trustees, a physician from the D-H Community Group Practices, and the following Ex-officio trustee members: the President of Dartmouth-Hitchcock, and the Dean of the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.

The Trustees volunteer their time to serve for a three-year term and may be elected for a maximum of three consecutive terms – nine (9) total years. The Trustees are a diverse group of volunteers with backgrounds in business, medicine, law, education, finance, etc. While a majority of Trustees reside in our Vermont/New Hampshire service area, D-H is enriched by having members from throughout the country.
