Student Opportunities

Medical Science Research Opportunities

Demonstrating research on your professional school application is a key to success. Throughout the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program, your advisor will encourage you to find the right health science research for you.

There are many research opportunities at UVM, a comprehensive university with its medical school facility on the main campus. UVM is one of the top-10 cancer research facilities in the country and is a leader in back-pain research.

Several of our students have found medical science research opportunities through the Honors College, where a coordinator of research opportunities is located. Opportunities with Medical College and UVM faculty are available. For additional information, stop by this office:

Local Medical Volunteer Opportunities

The admission review process to health profession programs evaluates your experience within your chosen field as an important factor in the admissions decision.

Many students start by volunteering or add a volunteer experience to broaden their understanding. Often finding a paid patient-care experience springs from the volunteering. The following link will take you to a list of programs that often need volunteers and are available in the greater Burlington area:  Volunteer-Opportunities (.pdf)
