White River Family Practice

Dr. Nunlist joined White River Family Practice (WRFP) in White River Junction, VT, in 1983, and over the next thirty years practiced full-spectrum primary care in a partnership that grew to include five other family physicians, two family nurse practitioners, and a physician assistant. He served as one of three core physician-leaders in the implementation of an electronic health record system, and led the development of a population-based approach to the provision of primary care to all patients seen at the practice. In 2013 WRFP was recognized as a recipient of the national HIMSS Davies Ambulatory Award of Excellence.

In the latter third of his career, Dr. Nunlist obtained an MS in Health Care Leadership from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. In 2014, White River Family Practice was awarded a State Innovation Model grant (through Vermont) to further its improvement work, and although Dr. Nunlist retired at the close of 2013, he continues to consult with the practice in the development of innovative models of individual anm population-based primary care delivery.

Dr. Nunlist has served as the medical director of performance improvement at the local community hospital concentrating on a systematic approach to understanding and improving those factors that contribute to optimal hospital outcomes, and is an assistant professor in the Department of Community and Family Medicine of the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.
