Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students @UVM LCOM

Welcome to the UVMLCOM community! The Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at The University of Vermont places your health, safety, and academic success as our highest priority. With this in mind, UVM requires every new incoming student to take the Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students (SAPG) program. The program uses evidenced-based research to teach students about sexual misconduct. Whether you encounter misconduct or not, SAPG will help empower you to make informed choices.

Over 500,000 students across the country complete these courses each year.

All incoming medical students are expected to complete this important training with a passing score on the final exam (70% or above), prior to matriculation.

To fulfill the requirement:

Part I - Complete the Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students Training

This training should take less than one hour to complete. The course ends with an exam and a survey. Students must receive a passing score on the final exam to complete this requirement; if you receive below a 70% (considered a fail in the curriculum), you will be asked to repeat the training.

In light of recent Title IX Updates, we were forced to delay the delivery of this training until after July 27, 2020 to ensure our vendor has updated our training to reflect the Title IX changes. We plan to launch this medical student preparation requirement as soon as possible.

Thus, the deadline for our incoming members of the Class of 2024 to complete Part I has been extended to Tuesday, September 01, 2020.

Once our training launches, personalized log-in links will be sent to your UVM email address ( The link in the email will prompt you to create an account using as the username and an Everfi password of your choosing. If you lost the email or can't find it, you can log in via the direct sign-in portal.

Part II (OPTIONAL - this is evaluation/research data for the training developers)

You will be prompted to complete a follow-up to SAPG 45 days after you complete Part 1; this follow-up will take approximately 15 minutes.

Part III - Course-Debriefing Session

The Office of Medical Student Education has scheduled debriefing sessions during the Fall Semester, as a mandatory Foundations of Clinical Sciences session.

The class debrief provides students a safe and confidential space to process and discuss what you learned or thought during and after taking the online training course.
