Frequently Asked Questions About the Pediatric Professionals Collaborative of Vermont

Who are the Pediatric Professionals Collaborative of Vermont?

The Pediatric Professionals Collaborative of Vermont is a professional group dedicated to supporting health care professionals in Vermont who work with children and young adults. We often abbreviate the name of our group as "PedsProVT".

This group includes and welcomes such health care professionals as:

  • occupational therapists
  • physical therapists
  • behavioral therapists
  • respiratory therapists
  • nurses
  • psychologists

If you treat children and/or youths in Vermont and are looking for professional fellowship and resources, please consider yourself welcome to join us.

What are the benefits of joining PedsProVT?

PedsProVT maintains an active and lively email list-serv.

A few times per week, members of the list-serv will post resources they've found helpful, or ask for help with professional topics and situations. Additionally, the PedsProVT coordinator, Adrienne Miao, posts a monthly round-up of quicklinks, upcoming events, and professional considerations to the list-serv. 

Didn't this project used to be called "TRIPSCY"?

Yes. From its founding in 2015 up through 2021, this project was known as TRIPSCY: Training and Resources for Interdisciplinary Professionals Serving Children and Youth.

In 2021, the members of the group decided to change the name to be something more specifically descriptive of their service focus, and to make it easier for other health care professionals to understand.
