Health Professions Students



Northern Vermont AHEC is pleased to support students in undergraduate and graduate health professions training programs with a variety of opportunities for community-based education. Click on the links to the left for more information about these programs!

Housing Support


Northern Vermont AHEC provides housing coordination for eligible students in the community where their clinical rotation is taking place. Home-stay housing provides students with the opportunity to see more of the rural community where they are doing their rotation, and this can significantly enhance the learning experience for the student.

Community Projects


These two-week, community-immersion projects are available to graduate students in health professions programs. Northern Vermont AHEC coordinates the project supports, and connects students’ interest with real community problems that can benefit from the students’ work. Topics vary from year to year.

Be a Mentor


You can make a big impact on younger students interested in science and health care as a mentor or an instructor in one of our health careers exploration programs. Introduce life sciences and health careers to middle and high school students at MedTrek or MedQuest.  Support high school students in the Burlington and Winooski communities to excel in science and math. Apply your knowledge and interests to inspire others. Paid and unpaid opportunities available. Contact us for more information, or watch this page for applications.

MedTrek Mentor applications for spring 2019 will be available in November, 2018.

MedQuest Mentor applications for summer 2018 are available now.
