Academic and Clinical Excellence
We offer educational programs and research opportunities in a setting that promotes the education of the community, staff, and students. Our programs are offered in conjunction with the clinical care provided by the Women's Health Care Service at The University of Vermont Medical Center.
Research and Education
The Department maintains an active program of research that includes clinical, translational and basic science investigation relevant to women's health. Our research is supported by extramural and intramural funding and derived from a combination of federal, private and institutional sources. Research programs in the areas of gynecologic oncology, reproductive endocrinology, high-risk obstetrics and more allow our patients to receive the newest innovations in health care without having to travel to Boston or New York City. All of these programs allow our students, residents and fellows to receive the high quality, innovative medical education required to serve the women of this region, and the country in the future.
