Vt. Medical Society elects Dartmouth surgeon Walsh as VP
Stowe, VT—The Vermont Medical Society elected Dartmouth vascular surgeon Daniel B. Walsh, MD, as its new vice president on October 29, during its 198th annual meeting at Topnotch Resort.
Walsh, a resident of Norwich, Vt., and a professor of surgery at Dartmouth Medical School (DMS), joined the staff at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) in 1987. He is medical director of referring-physician services at DHMC, and runs a biweekly clinic at the Central Vermont Medical Center (CVMC) in Barre.
"Obviously this is a great honor," Walsh says of the vice presidency, which he will serve for one year, "but really, it is recognition of the involvement that DHMC and its physicians have in the provision of health care to the citizens of Vermont."
After training at DMS for two years, Walsh earned his MD at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He completed his residency at the University of Michigan Medical Center.
The 2,000-member Vermont Medical Society serves Vermont's doctors and the patients and communities for which they care, through public-policy advocacy at the state and federal levels. It also provides legal, administrative, and educational support, produces news and information, and offers member benefits that increase medical practice effectiveness and efficiency.
