Student Education Group

Faculty Advisor - Dr. Christa Zehle
Staff Liaison - Dr. Leigh Ann Holterman

The Student Education Group is comprised of students dedicated to and actively involved in the improvement of the medical school curriculum. Representatives from each class meet once a month with the Interim Senior Associate Dean of Medical Education, Dr. Christa Zehle, to discuss a variety of issues pertaining to the student experience within the Vermont Integrated Curriculum (VIC). The group’s responsibility is to act as a liaison with faculty to provide a unified student point of view, and to appropriately bring pertinent educational issues to the attention of faculty and course directors. SEG is charged with reviewing course evaluations written by students at the close of each Foundations course and presenting that data to the Foundations Committee, which oversees the pre-clinical portion of the curriculum.

If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions,
please either let one of your SEG Representatives know or email Megan Boyer.
