STUDENT PERSPECTIVE

“UVM’s Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program is unparalleled because of the multitude of opportunities for research and patient care right on your doorstep. Having a hospital on campus is incredibly rare to find, and I was able to be a part of more patient care experiences because I could walk right to the hospital from any of my classes. This allowed me to be involved in unique opportunities such as working in the Emergency Department and volunteering in the hospital with the Art for the Heart program.”

“I recently was accepted to the UVM Larner College of Medicine after completing the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program at UVM. The courses I took through the Post-Baccalaureate Program provided me with the knowledge I needed to prepare me for success on the MCAT and applying to medical school. I benefitted from excellent professors and guidance from my advisor.”
