The mysteries of applying to professional schools through Middlebury will be deciphered. Join Mary Lothrop, the Director of Health Professions & STEM Advising, for this important meeting to learn about the internal Health Professions Committee review process and how professional schools will evaluate your application.
Thanks to Nancy Fullman ’07, Middlebury College has a curated list of entry-level and early career positions in global health. Every few weeks Nancy emails our office with job opportunities to share with you!
Nancy received her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Middlebury College in 2007 and went on to become a Post-Bachelor Fellow at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) from 2008 to 2011. She received her Master of Public Health in Health Metrics and Evaluation from the University of Washington in 2011. Nancy is now IHME’s Scientific Advisor and we are lucky to have her in our network! You can read more about Nancy on the IHME website.
Below are entry-level and early career global health positions Nancy has curated have over the last few weeks; note they are far from comprehensive, but it’s a sampling of what she could easily find and/or organizations she knows and respects. She’s highlighted current opportunities at IHME in yellow, as she is able to provide a bit more information about those particular positions.
This month’s list of opportunities can be downloaded here.

Some students elect to take a GRE subject test in preparation for graduate school. The paper based exam (available for Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, and Literature in English) is administered three times per academic year; in September, October, and April.
Middlebury College will be administering GRE subject tests on:
- Saturday, September 15, 2018
- Saturday, October 27, 2018
- Saturday, April 6, 2019
Seats are limited for the exam, so students are encouraged to register early through the ETS website.
Not all graduate programs require the subject test, and GREs come with an expiration date (typically 5 years), so consider meeting with a faculty or CCI advisor if you are considering taking a GRE subject test.
For additional information, please visit the GRE subject test section of the Educational Testing Service website.
Congratulations on nearing the AMCAS/AADSAS primary application submission date! It has been such a pleasure working with you all this past year and we look forward to supporting you through the application year as well. Please continue to ask questions as they come up – we are here to help!

- The 2019 AADSAS Application is open for submission on Tuesday, June 5th
What are the next steps after submitting your primary app?
- TRANSCRIPTS: All applicants need to request official transcripts through AMCAS. Learn more here. 2018 graduates – the registrar’s office will be getting us your final transcripts within the next few weeks. Unofficial transcripts will be uploaded to your Interfolio account for our INTERNAL process. You will still need to request official transcripts through AMCAS.
- Make sure to CLEAN OUT YOUR INTERFOLIO ACCOUNT. Delete duplicate letters, archive any letters you no longer wish to use, etc. But please keep any documents you used to go through the HPC process. We still need access to your bio report, transcripts, etc. You do not need to update your bio report.
- Follow the APPLICATION TIMELINE to make sure you have everything in for the June 1st deadline.
- Use the GOOGLE TRACKER to see where you are in the process. Remember that we don’t start your committee letter until your file is complete. Use the Google tracker to see what you are missing and why your file is not yet complete.
- You will want to begin pre-writing your SECONDARY ESSAYS. Check out our Medical School Secondary Essays webpage for more info and a link to the Medical School Secondary Essay Prompts Database.
- Remember to email us when:
- You submit your primary – in that email include a PDF copy of your AMCAS/AADSAS application.
- When you send in your first secondary application – this triggers us to start your committee letter (as long as your file is complete.)
- Med School applicants, SCHEDULE YOUR CASPer! – More and more schools are using CASPer, and anyone applying to UVM needs to take it. Learn more here. CASPer has specific dates and times and it can be helpful to check this off the to-do list when you are finished with their primary application and waiting for the secondary applications to come through.
Timeline for the Committee Letter:
- We start a first draft of your letter after your file is complete (see the June 1st deadlines in the Application Timeline) and you submit your primary application. Email our office once your application has been submitted.
- Once you have submitted your first secondary application (and your file is complete), email our office and we will place your file in the Letter Writing Queue. It is at that point that we finalize your letter. The Queue is a first come, first served system. Letters are typically completed within 2 weeks.
- When your committee letter is complete, we will contact you to let you know.
You are almost done with the first stage of this external process – you are doing great!
