The Center for Health and Wellbeing is your home for health and wellbeing at UVM.
We provide medical care, mental health care, and lead public health programs on campus. Our goal is to help students access tools and resources to support you and your unique experience of health and wellbeing both inside and outside the classroom.
Mission and Values
The primary mission of the Center for Health & Wellbeing is to enhance the learning environment of the University of Vermont by maintaining and improving the health, personal growth and wellbeing of the University Community. We do this by providing high-quality, cost-effective, prevention-oriented primary health care, mental health services, and educational outreach programs tailored to meet the needs of UVM students and community. By supporting the mental and physical health essential to intellectual and personal development, we support each student's full participation in University life. The Center for Health & Wellbeing also contributes directly to UVM's educational mission by providing mentoring and clinical experience for medical students and residents, athletic medicine interns and counseling trainees.
We have a variety of policies that govern our work. These include policies related to confidentiality and privacy practices, patient rights and responsibilities, medical withdrawal, short-term accommodations, treatment of minors, and more.
The Center for Health and Wellbeing is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
AAAHC defines high national standards for patient and client care, facilities, methodology and value. The accreditation process includes rigorous peer reviews and site visits.
