Research & Education
Our clinical and translational research spans the range from the bench, the bedside, and the community. We evaluate the impact of medications on the incidence of disease, technology on the incidence of prescribing errors, compassion and computers on the quality of care, the built environment on the content of health care services, and organizational strategies on the costs and outcomes of disease. We focus on the unique problems of life in rural areas.
AHEC (Area Health Education Center) is the home of the Vermont Academic Detailing Program for community physicians. Our faculty teach and mentor in the graduate programs and post-residency training in Clinical and Translational Science. We participate in teaching undergraduate and graduate students in surgery, computer science, nursing and health professions. Our faculty provide residency education in Internal Medicine and Psychiatry. For more information on the Vermont Academic Detailing Program please visit www.vtad.org.
