Health Professions Students

We are pleased to offer assistance to health professions students in a variety of ways.

Housing Assistance

Based on availability, we will arrange housing for eligible students/residents participating in a rural rotation in Vermont if the rotation is at least 25 miles (one way) from the UVM campus. We need at least one month to schedule housing.

Student Projects

Projects are designed to offer inter-professional community based service learning opportunities. We offer Community Health Improvement Projects as part of The Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at The University of Vermont Family Medicine students clinical rotation and Summer Projects.

AHEC Summer Projects are summer paid work and learning opportunities offered to UVM College of Medicine students, Nurse Practitioner, MSW and other graduate-level health professions students.

Student Opportunities

Introduce healthcare careers to high school students as an Assistant Director for MedQuest. There are a total of three, four-day MedQuest sessions each with a specific career-cluster focus. Please note, Assistant Director positions are open to graduate and undergraduate health professions students.

Take part in an AHEC Summer Project. Summer projects are community-based learning opportunities for Larner College of Medicine students and other graduate health professions students.
