Vermont Medicine magazine features stories about students, faculty, and the alumni of the Larner College of Medicine and its engagement with the wider community.

Dean Richard L. Page, M.D.

In January 2019, Vermont Medicine sat down with Dean Richard L. Page, M.D., to hear firsthand his experiences and impressions as he entered his fourth month as dean of the Larner College of Medicine. Says Dean Page: "Arriving at the College was exciting from the very beginning. The White Coat Ceremony for our Class of 2022 stands out as a highlight of my very first week. It was a truly moving experience. I received my own first Larner white coat that same day. To wear that and be part of that event was tremendously meaningful." >> READ MORE


After Jasmine Robinson ’20 experienced homelessness as a child, she turned her empathy for this population into action. Navigating the healthcare system as a transgender individual helped Eli Goldberg ’20 arrive at medicine as a career. Juan Conde ’21 came to the U.S. from Mexico as a child; now he wants to give back by treating patients with cancer. Thanks in part to these diverse life experiences— and a hefty dose of passion for their chosen field—these students bring to the UVM Larner College of Medicine a deep-seated sense of social responsibility. They want to shine light on the systemic inequality that affects human health, and the physician’s role in addressing it. They question how we practice medicine and how we can do it better.>> READ MORE

Renee Stapleton, M.D., Ph.D.

Renee Stapleton, M.D., Ph.D., keeps a treadmill desk in the corner of her office. But her colleagues, research collaborators, medical students and residents know that she hardly needs a machine to augment the effort she puts into all the dimensions of her daily work. Stapleton—a pulmonologist and critical care physician at UVM Medical Center and associate professor in the Department of Medicine— won the 2014 Jo Rae Wright Award for Outstanding Science from the ATS, which recognizes a rising star in academic pulmonary and critical care medicine. She was also presented with the 2018 Larner College of Medicine Faculty Award in Research Mentorship, and has been named vice-chair of the ATS’s scientific advisory committee and chair-elect of its critical care assembly. >> READ MORE
