Thanks to funding from the Gladstone award, Prof. Holmes can once again offer a J-Term academic internship course called “Health Policy in Action”. This course will combine a four day/week internship at a Vermont health care organization with one session/week in the classroom, providing the opportunity to apply liberal arts learning to real-world experience in addressing critical issues facing Vermonters. Students will spend 30 hours a week on-site at various organizations in Middlebury, Burlington and Montpelier. Class time will be spent debriefing the internship experience, building skills relevant to health policy analysis and working on the research project. Grading will be based on participation, evaluation by internship sponsor, evidence of personal growth, and performance on the final project.
IMPORTANT: Enrollment in the course is by approval only. Interested applicants must submit a resume to Professor Jessica Holmes (email@example.com with subject line JTERM) and a short online application (LINK to app is here: https://forms.gle/KZR5UresBwgcyPse6) by Oct 20. Please review internship descriptions below to rank your preferences in the application.
For Montpelier internships: The College has rented a shared house for students that is a walkable mile from downtown (the site of all internships). Students will have to cover most of their own food expenses during the week and will be expected to return to Middlebury College on weekends. There are some funds to defray gas expenses to/from Montpelier once a week and students with cars may be asked to offer rides to students without cars.
For Burlington internships: Students will stay on campus but there are some funds to defray travel expenses (gas and/or ACTR to Burlington). The College will cover hotel accommodations in Burlington during bad weather.
Below you will find more specific information about the internships available (For more info about each organization, check out their website). If you have questions, please reach out to Professor Jessica Holmes (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Vermont Program for Quality in Health Care (Montpelier, VT)
Sponsor: Catherine Fulton, Executive Director Intern will work the VPQHC team on their “Survey and Training for Independent Mental Health Providers” project- a project that developed through their Zero Suicide Work Group. The intern would help survey mental health clinicians across the state to identify both clinicians who have previously been trained in suicide specific treatment protocols and those clinicians who have not been trained but are interested in receiving training. The survey would also include an assessment of potential barriers to engaging in training. The intern would then interpret the results for a presentation to the Zero Suicide Work Group. The analysis will help develop a list of clinicians with suicide-specific treatment training, which can be shared with appropriate referral sources in order to encourage smooth and appropriate transitions of care for patients experiencing suicidal thoughts. The results will also inform the next phase of the project to increase the accessibility of evidenced-based suicide specific training, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Suicide Prevention or Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality.
