University of Vermont Visiting Student Elective Scholarship Program (VSESP)Sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the Larner College of Medicine and the Emergency Medicine faculty at the University of Vermont Medicine Center. The Scholarship program funded through the generous donations of Emergency Medicine faculty members provides a $2,500 stipend to visiting students to support travel and housing during the elective. We aim to:
  • Increase awareness of training and career opportunities in academic emergency medicine.
  • Encourage students from diverse backgrounds to apply to the University of Vermont Medical Center’s EM residency program.
  • Provide mentorship and networking for fourth-year medical students underrepresented in medicine such as racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ-identified or gender nonconforming individuals, individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, and those with special needs.
