MedQuest is a college campus-based health careers exploration program for Vermont high school students. Student participants reside in a dormitory and participate in a variety of didactic and shadowing experiences during an academically rich four-day experience. Mentors help deliver components of the designed programs, serve as role models for the students, and are 24/7 staff and chaperones. Graduate and undergraduate health professions students are welcome to apply.

MedQuest Health Careers Exploration Program will continue in 2018.
