The Donald J. Cohen Medical Student Training Program

The Donald J. Cohen Medical Student Training Program for University of Vermont College of Medicine Students allows for early mentored experience with children and families. This program offers:

  • Mentoring by child & adolescent psychiatrists. A mentor is assigned to students to be available throughout their 4 years. The mentor and mentee will have regular meetings to discuss cases and career plans.
  • There is a continuity of participation over 3-4 years. Mentors stay with students throughout the 4 years and help make research and clinical opportunities in child and adolescent psychiatry open to their mentees.
  • Mentees receive clinical, supervised exposure and experiences. They will get exposure to clinical and research experiences in child and adolescent psychiatry from the first year forward. They accompany mentors in the VCCYF clinic at Fletcher Allen Health Care with a plan to see some cases continually throughout their 4 years. Where appropriate, mentors will encourage students to have interaction with the child and the family during the assessment and treatment planning stages.
