Student Voice

At the Larner College of Medicine, we value students’ feedback, leadership, and voice in the broader community. There are many opportunities lead initiatives in matters that are important to you. In the past few years, students have had a large say in curriculum changes, have started new interest groups, implemented new Wellness initiatives, and participated in community-wide events, like the Gay Pride parade.

Here are some ways our students have an active voice on the medical campus and beyond:


Ava Bakhtyari, '20At UVM, the proximity of faculty and students allows for an environment where student initiative is welcome and encouraged…it is amazing to be part of a school that constantly has student driven efforts to implement change. Not only does this give us a chance to make the most of our learning experience, it also pushes us to take on new responsibilities and be the change we want to see.
