About the Program
The UVM Larner College of Medicine in partnership with Nuvance Health, serves a population of approximately 940,000 in 28 communities in the area of Connecticut spanning from coastal Norwalk in the south to the rolling hills of New Milford and Danbury to the north. Norwalk Hospital and Danbury Hospital are the main teaching hospitals with Danbury being the hub of our Global Health Program. The patients served represent a remarkable cross-section of economic, ethnic, racial and linguistic backgrounds. Easy access to New York City and the surrounding area makes this a cosmopolitan setting in which to live, work and play.
Students will find strong commitment to excellent patient care, award-winning teaching and a notably diverse patient population at the UVM Connecticut campus. This campus environment blends the best of traditional academic medical centers with community health care.
The campus is the site for the clerkship and advanced integration years. Students on this campus benefit from the same educational structure and learning goals as the Vermont campus and have successfully matched into their desired specialties over the length of this partnership.
The Larner College of Medicine's Global Health Program is a partnership with Nuvance Health that centers on international partnerships in sites around the world. The program focus is on improving patient care and medical education through cooperation and the exchange of ideas. By exposing students to different health care systems and socioeconomic structures, the program aims to give an understanding of the challenges in providing and improving patient care in our partnership countries.
