David Nierenberg MD
Dr. Nierenberg served as Section Chief in Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology at DHMC for 40 years, and also as the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education at Dartmouth Medical School (now Geisel School of Medicine). After attending Harvard Medical School, he performed his internship and residency in internal medicine at the Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, and completed a two-year cl fellowship in clinical pharmacology and toxicology at the University of California, San Francisco, and served as Chief Resident in Medicine at Stanford Medical Center.
In 1981 he joined the faculty at Dartmouth Medical School and the Hitchcock Clinic, and established a new Division of Clinical Pharmacology. His main activities centered around teaching medical pharmacology to medical students, and developing the first required medical school course in clinical pharmacology, as Dartmouth Medical School became a four-year program in 1981. Since stepping down as the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education in June 2012, Dr. Nierenberg has continued to see patients with medication-related or toxin-related problems, and continues to enjoy teaching and mentoring medical students and residents in areas related to pharmacology and toxicology. He has also enjoyed working as a volunteer general internist at Good Neighbor, and more recently serving as Clinic Co-Medical Director.
