Community Projects

Summer Projects
These two-week, community-immersion projects are available to graduate students in health professions programs.  As interdisciplinary projects, students gain valuable experience in working as a member of an inter-professional team.  Northeastern Vermont AHEC coordinates the project support, and connects the students' interest with real-world problems in rural communities that can benefit from the students’ work.

Summer projects enable graduate health professions students to explore the communities and health service systems in rural Vermont, while they work to improve health outcomes for rural Vermonters.  Prior to the start of the project, students are guided to engage in some research to familiarize themselves with existing models that pertain to the problem area they are investigating.  Then over two weeks, students work with a preceptor in their own field, and with knowledgeable community mentors to develop and test an intervention aimed at enhancing access to care. 

Student teams are provided with housing during the project and a stipend.  A poster and a summary project report are due at the end of the summer.
