I'm a UVM Medical Resident

UVM Medical Residents are entitled to a digital UVM CATcard. If you will be granted a teaching appointment through the College of Medicine you must be in the UVM PeopleSoft System to obtain a UVM Faculty/Staff digital CATcard. We are a one-card campus — all campus amenities are serviced via the one UVM card. This card provides you door access and the UVM debit account known as CAT$cratch.  You may obtain an ID during or after your orientation session has taken place. You are required to bring a form of a government issued photo ID with you (Driver's license, Military ID, Passport, etc).
