Alliance with Fletcher Allen Health Care

The alliance between Fletcher Allen and the University of Vermont adds to the health, character, and economic vitality of the state, bringing world-class research, education and care to communities throughout the region.

The University Medical Center

The alliance of the University of Vermont College of Medicine and College of Nursing and Health Sciences and Fletcher Allen Health Care forms Vermont's Academic Medical Center. Our region’s quality of life is improved by:

  • providing patients with the latest innovations in medicine and health care;
  • generating new knowledge about disease and wellness;
  • educating the next generation of health care professionals and scientists.

Our faculty physicians comprise the UVM Medical Group, which provides patient care at Fletcher Allen in addition to their roles as researchers and educators at the College of Medicine. Our medical research, in turn, ensures that patients benefit from breakthrough discoveries and clinical trials.

The College of Nursing and Health Sciences also partners with Fletcher Allen to educate students in clinical areas from nursing to laboratory science to nuclear medicine to physical therapy and to research health care issues such as worksite wellness and end of life care.
