Elise N. Everett, M.D., University of Vermont assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences and Fletcher Allen gynecologic oncologist, is currently participating in the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO) Academic Scholars and Leaders Program as a member of the 2013-14 class.

The rigorous, 15-month curriculum is designed to enhance education in obstetrics and gynecology by preparing obstetrics/gynecology physician faculty with the skills and knowledge necessary to be outstanding teachers and educational administrators. In addition, graduates are expected to fulfill major educational responsibilities and positions within their medical centers. Everett is conducting a project on effecting behavior change in faculty to improve medical student education, titled “Overcoming the barriers of burn-out, buy-in, and overburdened faculty.” Her UVM/Fletcher Allen mentor is Ted James, M.D., associate professor of surgery, surgical oncologist, and director of clinical simulation.

In addition to her clinical role, Everett, who joined UVM/Fletcher Allen in 2011, also serves as the associate residency director for the Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology, as well as the obstetrics/gynecology clerkship director for the UVM College of Medicine Office of Medical Student Education. Her clinical research interests include neoadjuvant chemotherapy for ovarian cancer, robotic surgery, and adenocarcinoma of the cervix. She has experience in curriculum development in the areas of robotic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, simulation, and communication. Everett has been recognized locally for her commitment to medical education through resident and student teaching awards. She serves on numerous College of Medicine, hospital, and departmental committees related to medical education.
