Student Support

At UVM, we understand how important your educational goals and aspirations are, and we strive to honor the level of commitment you are making as you embark on your journey toward medical school or a health-professional professional through our Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program. That’s why we offer personalized educational and professional support in a variety of ways throughout your time at the University of Vermont. Our student support includes:

Personalized Advising & Planning

Our advisors are here for you every step of the way, providing support from the first time you inquire about our program until the day you are accepted into medical school. We focus on identifying your top choices for medical schools, building a customized plan in order to create your own unique UVM Post-Bacc Premed experience.  We will guide you on understanding the application cycle and requirements for our linkage agreements. We help you to identify curriculum, research, and patient care opportunities to help you gain successful admission into health-professional and medical schools.

Medical Opportunities That Give You an Edge

Since our program is aligned with UVM’s top-ranked Larner College of Medicine and an award-winning academic medical center focused on outstanding patient care, students have better access to unique research opportunities, direct patient care experiences, and community service opportunities.  We will guide you in gaining experiences that best fit your interests and give you an edge when you are applying for medical school.

MCAT and Interview Preparation

We work with you to determine the best resources to help you prepare for your MCAT and medical school interviews. In addition, UVM offers a Summer Medical School Prep Program that focuses specifically on becoming better prepared for the MCAT and interviewing skills.

Linkage Agreements

UVM offers linkage agreements with a variety of health and medical schools including our own top-tier UVM Larner College of Medicine.  We provide guidance on how to meet the criteria to satisfy the requirements for linkage agreements.  See our Linkage Agreements page for more details.

Relocating to Burlington, Vermont
