Emergency Medicine Residency Program Leadership

Richard Bounds MD  

Richard Bounds, MD, FACEP, FAAEM
Program Director

It has been a dream come true to have been given the opportunity to build the UVM Medical Center EM residency program. As a husband, father, physician, educator, and athlete, it is challenging to juggle all the roles and competing demands. But Vermont is a place where people truly value balance, and the culture is one that fosters relationships, healthy living, and getting outside. The mountain biking and running trails, the ski slopes, and cross-country terrain, and Lake Champlain’s beautiful beaches provide endless opportunities to explore and enjoy time with my friends and family. The lifestyle, combined with the incredible academic resources and the amazing people at UVM Medical Center, make this the ideal place to practice and to train EM residents.

I was born and raised in coastal Maine and spent the first several years of my emergency medicine career in Rhode Island. While I’ve loved each place that I’ve lived and worked, nowhere feels more like home than here in Vermont. My wife and I were married many years ago in Stowe and we’ve always had a deep connection with this state. In our eyes, it’s the ideal place to work and play all four seasons of the year. We value an active lifestyle and want to raise our kids to appreciate the beauty of the environment around us. Beyond being an outdoor enthusiast’s mecca, we love Vermont because it is filled with Vermonters. There’s no place we’d rather be!

Program Administrator

I grew up in small town in Vermont and have always loved the strong sense of community.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Saint Michael’s College in 2002.  I’ve worked at The University of Vermont Medical Center since 2011 and was very excited for the opportunity to become the Program Administrator for the Emergency Medicine Residency Program.  I’m very passionate about helping others achieve their goals and working with the amazing group of EM residents has been very fulfilling.  I’ve lived in Vermont for over 30 years and it’s been a wonderful place for my husband and I to raise our children.
