Although taking a summer medical course in four to six weeks can be an intense way to study, it also can help students grasp key concepts they previously have misunderstood.
Students in the University of Vermont’s Summer Medical Program take courses just like those offered during the regular medical school year from the same UVM College of Medicine faculty. However, the Summer Medical Program is designed to offer students more individualized attention and increased access to medical school faculty. In this environment, students become deeply immersed in their coursework, ensuring their future success in medical school.
Likewise, the Summer Medical Program is an ideal opportunity for undergraduate, post-graduate, and graduate students to get a taste of what to expect in medical school; demonstrate on their transcripts that they are ready for medical school; and in many cases, transfer credits once they enroll.
History and Reputation
The University of Vermont’s summer medical courses are taught by accomplished faculty researchers from the university’s College of Medicine, which has trained physicians for nearly 200 years. Due to the UVM medical school’s stellar reputation, many institutions readily accept credits from its summer medical courses. (In all cases, students should check with their home institutions to ensure credits will transfer.)
The University of Vermont’s medical school and its affiliated teaching hospital, Fletcher Allen Health Care, are located side-by-side on the university’s main campus. This close relationship allows students to take advantage of state-of-the-art teaching, medical research, and clinical facilities. Students take courses in the Given Medical Building, which is attached to the university’s medical library and the Fletcher Allen Health Care Ambulatory Care Center.
