Elizabeth Ann Gormley, MD
Urologist & Professor of Surgery
What is your fondest memory in your 25 years working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock?
The colleagues I work with. Outside of work, we attend dinners, graduation and holiday parties and nights when we get together after work.
What about your job inspires you?
I chose to go into urology because of the variety of patients and procedures, and because of the opportunity to follow the patients long term. Thirty-three years after making the decision to go into urology, I still love my work for those same reasons. Training residents provides further inspiration as one sees residents progress from internship to graduation.
What do you like best about your department?
My colleagues. We are supportive of one another and learn from one another.
Our residents. It's a privilege to train residents, and it's been an honor to lead our residency program for the last 17 years.
The place. One of the reasons I came to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) was because Urology had a collegial relationship with Gynecology. We've maintained that relationship over the last 25 years.
The location of DHMC is also very special. There aren't many places where you can you live in the country and be seven miles from a major medical center. I am fortunate to live and work in the Upper Valley.
