“Incredible Members of our Community:” Disability Awareness Day

Written by Cordelia Ross ’16
To me, advocacy means speaking up when I hear someone using insensitive language. Advocacy means assuming competence in my interactions with all patients, regardless of their physical appearance, and encouraging my colleagues to do the same. Advocacy means serving as an ally to those with disabilities and their families and working to reduce the stigma and discrimination that they so often encounter.

Active learning in the Larner Classroom.

Students Share Their Stories

Students at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont share their thoughts with peers, mentors, family, and friends.  Everything from what inspired them to choose a career in medicine, to their first-year experience, to fourth year rotations – the personal and the professional.
