Three essential components make UVM the ideal emergency medicine program:
Prominent Academic Medical Center
The UVM Medical Center provides a top-notch academic “home” for our training program, providing you with outstanding teaching and access to incredible research opportunities. This tertiary referral Level 1 Trauma center serves Vermont and
northeastern New York, and, as the front door, our ED provides exposure to very high acuity and complexity.
Training Across the Entire Resource Spectrum
Here at UVM, through our wilderness medicine and global health opportunities, you will develop the skills and confidence to provide care in austere, resource-limited environments. You will become comfortable with point-of-care ultrasound, regional anesthesia,
and many other bedside diagnostic and treatment modalities. Our rural and community EM experiences will teach you to practice independent of consultants, and make rapid decisions, including when transfer is indicated. These experiences will truly
prepare you to work in any setting.
We feel there is no better place to live and work than Burlington, Vermont. If you love the outdoors, whether it’s snow-covered mountain peaks, beautiful Lake Champlain, technical singletrack, or a competitive race scene, this is the place for you!
The Burlington area provides a unique “small town” feel, while simultaneously offering incredible food, music, and a culture of wellness. Our faculty, and really everyone you will work with, is passionate about creating balance, having
fun outlets, and living healthy lives.
