Academic Progress

Policy 500.00

Policy Statement

The four-year Vermont Integrated Curriculum is designed to achieve six overarching competencies through sequential progression through the components: Foundations (Year 1 and Year 2), Clerkships, and Advanced Integration Levels. Specific courses and requirements are listed in The Vermont Integrated Curriculum and in the syllabi found in the Larner College of Medicine Educational Tools (COMET) Vermont Integrated Curriculum Portal (VIC Portal). Student  advancement to graduation is also dependent on passing global assessments of competency through Clinical Skills Examinations, nationally-normed cognitive examinations and United States Medical Licensing Examinations. Students advancing through the curriculum agree to be familiar with and abide by the rules, regulations, policies, and procedures governing attendance, assessment, academic standards, academic progress, and course and curriculum evaluation.
