Through the Frymoyer Scholars Program, the John W. and Nan P. Frymoyer Fund for Medical Education supports physicians and nurses who are actively engaged in teaching University of Vermont medical and nursing students and who embody the best qualities of the clinician teacher. The program is an investment in outstanding medical education and promotes teaching that emphasizes the art of interprofessional collaborative patient care. More details about the program can be found via the website links below.  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity by submitting a proposal. Applications for 2022 are due by March 14, 2022.
