Course: MD 504 - Doctoring in Vermont

Doctoring in Vermont is a course with both a spring (March-June) and fall (September-December) session. Each session consists of 6 afternoons (total of 12 sessions for the course) spent in the office of an assigned community preceptor recruited from among the primary care physician community within a one-hour drive of Burlington. Students travel to their preceptor's office and practice examination and interviewing skills under direct supervision. In the fall students must accomplish two "complete" history and physical examinations, one with their preceptor and one with a standardized patient at the campus Assessment Center.
