StellaGreat reputation, beautiful location, brought me back to UVM.  I wanted to be immersed in a dedicated program, reputable program and that’s why I chose to pursue a PostBacc.  We all have this career goal of helping people heal and the rigor that comes with that, so it has really been a supportive community.

BryceI had always had a passion for medicine but thought it was out of reach.  Then realized that UVM has the PostBacc Pre-Med program that brought it all back and made it accessible. I really enjoyed the professors, the other PostBaccs have been encouraging and supportive.  I’m a little bit older than the other students and connecting with other PostBaccs and sharing common experiences has been positive.

Anna Rosa“I chose UVM for a few reasons. First, the program offered a flexible format where I could take all the required courses in the time frame that made the most sense for me. Second, its location is incredible! Once enrolled, I was pleased to discover the environment is one where professors are approachable and invested in their students’ success. Another incredible and unique thing about UVM is that the undergraduate college, medical school, research labs, and hospital are all on the same campus. This meant that I could study in the medical library after class and be at work in the Emergency Department or in the research lab in a matter of minutes.

Trevor“UVM’s PBPM program allows students to personalize their schedules to best fit their needs, something that has been very helpful to me given my academic and professional background. This, in addition to the Larner COM linkage, was a big draw for me. Having the UVM Medical Center right on campus helped influence my decision, and has proven to be extremely valuable. “

Zachary“I loved UVM’s flexibility. Other schools I looked at had very rigid curriculums and timetables for knocking out your premedical requirements which didn’t fit my needs.

Quite simply, this program will get you where you need to go. The advising team took the time to help me figure out what I needed to do to become a competitive applicant and set me on the path to accomplish the necessary milestones.”

“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.”
