Meet Dr. Peter Spiegel
Dr. Spiegel graduated from Dartmouth College in 1958, and Harvard in 1961 before radiology training at Brigham and spending 3 years in the Navy. He worked at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (or as it was then the Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital and Hitchcock Clinic) since 1968 before his retirement in 2011.
During his time here, he served in innumerable key administrative roles including Chair of Radiology for over 20 years, and two years as the President of the Hitchcock Clinic. There is no area of this institution that Peter was not involved in, helping guide and grow both the department and institution towards where it is today. Many of his residents stayed on or came back as faculty, and he was particularly supportive of female faculty. Nationally he was particularly well regarded as leader in the American Society of Clinic Radiologists.
