Alumni Innovation Fellow
COURTNEY HILL, MD (2016-2017)
Dr. Courtney Hill was born and raised in upstate New York. She studied Hispanic languages and literatures at the University of Pittsburgh and studied abroad in Cuba and Brazil before matriculating to SUNY Upstate Medical University. After graduating from medical school, she spent an intensive year learning research methods and performing prospective clinical trials in pediatric otolaryngology at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. Dr. Hill completed a residency in otolaryngology - head and neck surgery at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in 2016, during which she successfully earned regional and national grant funding for her research. Courtney established normative taste data in children and studied how taste might change with tonsillectomy and potentially relate to change in body mass index after surgery. She presented her work at the podium of multiple national meetings throughout residency and has published a body of work as the first author. She will go on to a fellowship in pediatric otolaryngology at Texas Children’s Hospital in 2017.
In her free time, Courtney enjoys biking, refurbishing furniture, picking fresh fruit, making ice cream and spending time with family.
