Class of '21 Participates in Clerkship Lottery
On October 18, second-year medical students participating in block Clerkships selected their flight groups in a lottery-style format in the Sullivan Classroom that included a cash prize, cheers and tons of excitement. The first name drawn for selecting a flight group was Kristen Keene and the last was John Vandenberge, who walked away with a jar full of dollars contributed by each of the soon-to-be Clerkship students. After their name was called, each student added themselves to one of seven flight groups, which determine the order in which students will complete their eight block clerkships. Block clerkship site locations include UVM Medical Center; Danbury Hospital (Ct. campus); Norwalk Hospital (Ct. campus); St. Mary's Medical Center (West Palm Beach, Fla.); Central Maine Medical Center (Lewiston, Maine); Champlain Valley Physicians' Hospital-UVM Health Network (Plattsburgh, N.Y.); Porter Medical Center-UVM Health Network (Middlebury, Vt.); and Rutland Regional Medical Center.
In mid-March, these students will begin their block Clerkships, while several others will participate in a year-long Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (LIC) at Hudson Headwaters Health Network in New York’s Adirondack region, at Central Vermont Medical Center or at our Connecticut campus. Look for info about the Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (LIC) in the next issue of the newsletter!
