Message from the Program Director
Welcome to UVM Family Medicine!
My goal for our residents is to allow you to graduate in 3 years with the opportunity to practice full spectrum Family Medicine, in whatever environment you choose. We work really hard to give you a strong foundation in inpatient and outpatient medicine, adult and pediatric medicine, sports medicine, as well as full spectrum reproductive care. Post-residency, you will be able to deliver a baby on a plane, train or automobile! And for those of you who choose, you will be well-qualified to independently practice low-risk obstetrics. Beyond those foundations, all of our residents have exposure and training in addiction medicine, gender affirming care, point of care ultrasound, and office-based procedures.
Approximately half of our graduates stay and practice in Vermont (both locally in Chittenden County, as well as in more rural areas of the state). The other half spread their wings, and practice around the globe. See where our recent graduates are practicing.
Taking care of families and seeing the difference small medical interventions can make in an entire family’s life, is one of the most rewarding and privileged things you will do as a physician. Training at the UVM Family Medicine Residency will allow you to do all this and more. I hope to meet you on the interview trail. Also, don’t forget to follow us on Instagram @uvmfamilymedres
