About the Program
The University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine's campus at Western Connecticut Health Network (WCHN) is ideal for students who have an independent spirit and an eagerness to learn clinical medicine in an environment that blends the best of traditional academic medical centers with the “real world” aspects of community health care.
The Connecticut campus is the setting for thirty-five students during the last two years of clinical training. Students will complete clinical rotations that include surgery, inpatient medicine, ambulatory medicine, family medicine, neurology, pediatrics, psychiatry and ob-gyn at this dynamic, student-centered location that offers some distinct characteristics and opportunities. The WCHN curriculum shares the same basic structure of the curriculum as the main campus, with an intentional focus on community, public health and global health.
At the heart of the program is the WCHN/UVM Global Health Program, based at Danbury Hospital. While in Connecticut, students will interact with visiting medical students and physicians from our sister organizations in Zimbabwe, Uganda, Russia, Vietnam and the Dominican Republic.
