The Governor’s Institute on Health and Medicine is the perfect place to explore the vast array of opportunities within the healthcare industry. Get a jumpstart on your career by joining us for a week-long exploration of health, medical care, and health careers in Vermont.
Be part of the launch of this dynamic new Institute; a partnership of the Governor’s Institutes of Vermont and the Northern Vermont Area Health Education Center (AHEC).

This year, you can choose between three engaging and varied strands:
Emergency and Sports Medicine

Neuroscience & Psychology
In all three strands, you’ll be gaining direct experience via interactive simulations at the lab, field-relevant role play scenarios around Norwich’s campus, and by working with and learning from practicing physicians and health care professionals!
