Interested in a career in healthcare?
VT REACH (Virtual Teleconference: Reach, Explore, & Aspire to Careers in Healthcare) is a virtual event that allows students interested in healthcare careers the opportunity to connect with professionals and students from the Larner College of Medicine and UVM Medical Center. Due to COVID-19, the ability of students and mentors to engage in meaningful shadowing experiences has been halted while the need for healthcare professionals has become emphasized. These Zoom teleconferences will reimagine the connection between students and healthcare providers in the Vermont community. Students will hear directly from care providers about their educational and professional journeys, including the challenges and successes they’ve experienced, while also gaining a sense of a typical “day in the life” for different healthcare professionals. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions & make connections at UVM that may potentially allow for shadowing, research, or job opportunities in the future.
The first VT REACH session will take place on March 25th from 7-8:30pm. A panel of six medical students from LCOM will be talking about their journey to and through medical school along with Dr. Nathalie Feldman, the Interim Associate Dean of Admissions at LCOM, who will be discussing what makes a strong candidate for medical school.
Register here to receive a zoom invitation for the first session.
The deadline to register is March 25th by noon.
