Fletcher Allen, a Vermont university hospital and medical center, serves all of
Vermont and the northern New York region. Located in Burlington, Fletcher Allen is a regional, academic healthcare center and teaching hospital in alliance with the University of Vermont.
Family Medicine Residency Program
The University of Vermont and Fletcher Allen offer a welcoming collaborative community atmosphere, where you’ll practice alongside skilled and experienced family physicians that bring the benefits of academic medicine and top quality education in rural medical care to patients each and every day.
Where Big Meets Small
Here you’ll receive a well-rounded experience as a physician in both a bustling academic medical center environment, and a quieter rural clinic setting. You’ll learn to thrive in each of these environments and to become proficient in the personal and professional skills critical to being a family physician.
Milton Family Practice is the primary home of the resident and faculty practices, and offers valuable experience in comprehensive, family-centered, rural care. Milton is a town of 10,000 people located 12 miles northeast of Burlington. This unique location serves over 28,000 patients annually and offers the full spectrum of family medicine care in a setting conducive to community involvement.
Our family medicine faculty and residents manage an active inpatient family medicine service caring for newborns, pediatric, maternity and adult medicine patients throughout our 562-bed tertiary care center. There you’ll get valuable exposure to some of the most cutting-edge technology and be involved in cases that you’ll only find at a university hospital.
Teamwork, Community and Family
Teamwork is the basis for any successful effort, and is one of the foundations of family medicine practice. Our residents work collaboratively on community medicine and practice improvement projects, have input in curriculum development, and support each other. Not only will you work as a team and become a competent clinician, but you’ll acquire the skills to be a respected health care team leader and citizen. These are all invaluable lessons you will learn as a family physician in the special environment that Fletcher Allen and UVM College of Medicine offer.
