Email is the official means of communication of The Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at The University of Vermont. Students are expected to check their Larner College of Medicine e-mail accounts daily and maintain their account so that they
remain functional (e.g., not allowing their mailboxes to exceed the quota, not forwarding it to a third party account, etc.). Students who do not read official notices sent in email are not excused from responsibility for email contents.
Created in response to student requests to limit the number of messages sent to “class of” email distribution lists, the Office of Medical Student Education (OMSE) coordinates announcements and presents aggregate information in the WeeklyWire. The WeeklyWire is the Larner College
of Medicine’s primary communication tool for all communication to the student community for non-curriculum-related content. The latest issue is live on the OMSE website and the office sends a link to the issue along with most of its contents to the student community via email every Sunday (some holiday and summer scheduling exceptions). Students who do not read official notices sent in email are not excused from
responsibility for email contents, including all WeeklyWire content.
