The Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at The University of Vermont is named to honor the spirit of giving embodied by Dr. Larner, a member of the College’s Class of 1942. Born in Burlington’s Old North End, Dr. Larner served his country in World War II, and then served his patients for over 50 years. Here at his alma mater, he and his wife Helen fostered a culture of giving back throughout the alumni community. The Larners’ personal generosity has ensured a medical education second to none for generations of future physicians.
