Welcome to the Community Medical School, a series of evening lectures where you'll learn from the top faculty experts who teach and inspire the next generation of physicians and scientists at the University of Vermont Medical Center, Vermont's only academic medical center.
Each presentation reviews a current medical science topic in an easy-to-understand format, including informational handouts and a question-and-answer session following the lecture. Join us for a lecture this spring in UVM's Carpenter Auditorium.
PLEASE NOTE: Pre-registration helps us plan for the evening's lecture; it does not guarantee seating. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Opening Hearts: The TAVR Procedure for Aortic Stenosis
Aortic stenosis – a severe narrowing of the aortic valve – can lead to chest pain, shortness of breath and death due to heart failure. Learn about treatment options and outcomes for this condition, including a new FDA-approved procedure tested at UVM called transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) that uses catheters instead of open heart surgery to replace heart valves.
