Weekly FYIs from OMSE - We are here to help!

  • Free Week at UVM! Every semester, the first week the undergrads return is officially "Free Week" at UVM's Rec Center. The university invites all students, faculty, and staff to explore the group fitness classes offered at UVM Campus Rec. Attend ANY group fitness class for free from August 29 - September 04. After free week, you can purchase an all-access group fitness pass for only $65 for the remainder of the semester. Please contact Campus Rec @ UVM with any questions.
  • Fall 2016 Safety Message to Faculty, Staff and Students: As the new academic year gets underway, it is important to familiarize ourselves with the changing campus road and pedestrian pathways, and safety considerations caused by the on-going construction. With this in mind, UVM encourages all motor vehicle operators, pedestrians, bicyclists and skateboarders travelling on campus to follow posted safety and/or traffic signs especially through the yellow caution construction safety zones. This may include slowing down, stopping and giving way, dismounting or off-boarding and walking due to the increased congestion of people and vehicular traffic. Please remember, each of us contributes to our own and each other's safety. Questions regarding safety should be directed to UVM's Risk Management and Safety Office (802-656-3242). Please feel free to view the updated campus map.
  • Given Mailboxes and Given Lockers: Did you know that you can always find your Given Mailbox number, combination, and helpful instructions on how to use the combination mailboxes under their "Academic History", within OASIS? When you visit Academic History, you should see a section labeled "Mailboxes, Lockers, and Pagers." Locker numbers and combinations can also be found under this section. Pagers are coming soon. Please feel free to contact the Office of Medical Student Education with any questions or concerns.
  • 'Tis the Season for New Badge Thingies! This year, we are happy to introduce students to the "Medical Student Badge Buddy!" You may have seen badge buddies around the hospital identifying Residents, Attendings, etc. We (UVM COM & UVMMC) believe it will help doctors identify students for learning opportunities. Moreover, the Buddies help keep patients and hospital staff well-informed regarding your status as a student versus credentialed physician.
    UVM Medical Student Badge Buddy
    All first-year students (co2020) received their Medical Student Badge Buddy when they picked up their UVMMC badges, during orientation. We have additional Badge Buddies for members of the Class of 2019, 2018, and 2017 available, and have placed one for each of you, in your Given Mailboxes! If, for any reason, your buddy is not in your Given Mailbox, please swing by anytime during regular business hours (M-F, 8am - 4:30pm) to snag your new swag (you should read this last part out loud - it's very fun to say; try and say it five times, fast)! Please contact the Office of Medical Student Education with any questions.

Through a generous donation from the daughter of an alumnus, augmented with unrestricted scholarship funds distributed through the Dean's Office, we will be offering the opportunity for up to 12 students to receive a $35,000 scholarship for the longitudinal integrated clerkship year. This essentially means one tuition-free year for in-state students, and a $35,000 reduction for out-of-state students. We are committed to educating physicians prepared to serve across all disciplines in any community and any healthcare system, and this generous gift will help students who are interested in primary care, those who desire to serve in a rural community, and those who want to experience the autonomy and broad patient panel that a longitudinal clerkship year offers. Many of you have expressed an interest in applying for the LIC programs, and we are grateful to have the support of our donors to help remove some of the financial barriers students may face. If you are interested in applying for the program and the $35,000 scholarship, please download and complete the application. Contact Aaron Hurwitz, Curriculum Specialist, with any questions.

Legacy Teachers Collaborative Workshop

The highly successful Legacy Teachers program at the University of Missouri-Columbia was developed to contribute to an institutional climate that promotes patient-centered care and to provide our third year medical students the opportunity to recognize and say thank you to a patient who has taught them lessons they feel will make them a better physician.
