Established In 1822 as one of the nation's first medical schools, the University of Vermont College of Medicine provides significant value to the community, the state and the region. The mission of the College, in alliance with academic medical center partner, Fletcher Allen Health Care, is to educate a diverse group of dedicated physicians and biomedical scientists to serve across all the disciplines of medicine; to bring hope to patients by advancing medical knowledge through research; to integrate education and research to advance the quality and accessibility of patient care; and to engage with our communities to benefit Vermont and the world. Over 35% of the physicians, and 42% of the primary care physicians practicing in Vermont received their education or training at UVM and Fletcher Allen, and each year nearly 6,000 applicants compete for approximately 114 places in the entering class. Graduates go on to residencies at top institutions nationwide, many choosing to pursue careers in primary care. The award-winning Vermont Integrated Curriculum offers students early access to broad clinical experience, a firm grounding in the basic sciences, the opportunity to work with internationally known researchers, and an emphasis on community service. Through an innovative curriculum that blends these experiences, students become competent, compassionate, dedicated physicians with a life-long desire to learn.
