The Health & Medicine Institute 
Vermont State University – Lyndon 
July 9th to July 15th 2023

The 2023 Governor’s Institute on Health & Medicine is a 7-day, 6-night residential experience with a virtual component all focused on clinical skills. Clinical skills include history-taking, physical examination, clinical investigations, using diagnostic reasoning, procedural perfection, effective communication, teamwork, and professionalism in a healthcare setting. Practical skills will be acquired through hands-on scenarios and interactive case-based learning that result in first aid and CPR certifications. Each day, participants will choose from a variety of health science and career exploration sessions in topics spanning the fields of medicine, mental health and psychology, clinical lab science, and biomedical engineering.

For participants who are at least 15 years old, the content and skills learned at the Institute on Health & Medicine can qualify you to become a certified Vermont EMS First Responder (VEFR). This is a Vermont-specific, work-based credential acquired through affiliation with a Vermont Office of EMS licensed ambulance or EMS first response service.  If you are interested in exploring this possibility, our faculty will assist you with meeting the additional requirements.
