Medical Assistant for Pre-Medical Gap Year Students

Interested in taking a gap year? The Kuchnir Dermatology Bridge Year Program is an excellent clinical experience perfect for those interested in pursuing an interactive, patient-oriented gap year for 14- or 26-months before medical school matriculation!

Students in the program learn about Dermatology by scribing for physicians, coordinating patient care, and attending educational events. This unique opportunity allows students to develop strong interpersonal skills with patients along with a solid foundation of the healthcare system, especially the intricacies of administrative work that go into achieving high-quality patient care.

They are looking for highly energetic students passionate about patient care with an aspiration to become a well-rounded physician. Applicants must demonstrate excellent communication skills, a strong work ethic, and a passion for the life-long learning that is required once matriculating to medical school. The program offers positions in the Boston area along with a few opportunities out-of-state. Deadline Thursday January 18th 2018.

I Use a Wheelchair. And Yes, I’m Your Doctor.

Many thanks to our colleague Susan Burch for sharing this article with us!

“People with disabilities often express fear or dissatisfaction with our health care system because they face poor access and discriminatory attitudes. This must change. Perhaps having more doctors with disabilities is one solution. As with any underrepresented group in medicine, professional diversity should reflect our population’s diversity. That simple change can bring awareness, empathy and a shared experience that ultimately makes all of us better.”

Throwback Thursday: Zach Schuetz


Some of the employees working within the libraries once had other roles and separate affiliations with Middlebury. Follow their (r)evolutions on the first Thursday of every month this semester.

Name: Zach Schuetz  

Former Role(s) on Campus: Class of 2011, Japanese Major, Linguistics Minor; Japanese Language School 2009

Current Role on Campus: Senior Technology Specialist; Advisor, Xenia Social House

When was this photo taken? Fall 2008, at the Quidditch World Cup (then hosted in Middlebury.)

What were you doing in this photo?

Just observing, though in other years I competed or performed with the Mountain Ayres for the halftime show.

How have things changed in your life since then? I’ve gained a lot of perspective on what I want out of life and what I’m willing to do to get there. For example, I love teaching, so at the time I was planning to be a college professor. But I’m not that excited about doing original research, so instead I found a position where I still get to teach and answer questions, but in a less formal setting, and without the stress of grad school and adjunct hell.

What hasn’t? I still speak Japanese sometimes, and I still enjoy watching anime, playing tabletop games, and attending events at Xenia. I also wear my wizard hat to work on special occasions.

What’s your favorite thing about your job? The satisfaction of solving a difficult puzzle, helping students and faculty do all the awesome things they do (both in an IT context and at Xenia), and getting to live and work in the wonderful community at Midd.

What is on the horizon? Getting more involved with the community and seeking social and romantic opportunities here and in Burlington. Paying off student loans and saving up for a down payment on a house so I can start to think about settling down.
