Oxeon Partners Coming to Campus 10/18

Information Session Thursday, October 18 at 4:00 PM in CCI Library – RSVP in Handshake.

Come meet alumna Isabelle Tabah ’18!

“Oxeon” is the Greek word for relationships. They are inspired by how relationships can drive new jobs, investments, business development opportunities, or just a simple introduction between people. That notion permeates everything they do.

They are a healthcare growth services firm. They connect their healthcare company partners with the fundamental drivers of business growth – great people, great business development partnerships, strategic investments, next generation business ideas and other growth-related services.

But what that all boils down to is that they value relationships more than transactions, and they value people more than anything—especially their power to drive innovation and transformation in the healthcare industry.

Oxeon is hiring for their NYC & SF offices! If you are passionate about healthcare, start ups, recruiting, people, making a difference and functioning as an impact player, check out their open Associate position in Handshake.


Volunteer with MREMS on Thursday, 10/11

On Thursday, October 11, 2018 from about 7:30 am to noon Middlebury Regional EMS (MREMS) will be participating in an emergency preparedness and response exercise for University of Vermont Health Network-Porter Medical Center (UVMHN-PMC) and community response partners.

The vision for this exercise will be to test and validate the policies, plans, and procedures for managing an influx of patients to the Porter Medical Center Emergency Department (ED) based on some type of mass casualty event.  One option under consideration would be a simultaneous ‘disaster event’ at Helen Porter that generates the ED influx.

PMC is looking for a few mock patients to help make this more realistic and be moulaged and transported as part of this drill. Please wear old clothes that can get dirty or stained. 

If you are interested in helping out as a patient please contact Mike Leyden at PMC by September 29th:  mleyden@portermedical.org

Engaging in Clinical Shadowing Opportunities Abroad

With Winter Term internships just around the corner, and summer internships not far behind, we thought it timely to remind you about engaging in clinical shadowing opportunities abroad.

Serving as a medical volunteer, EMT or getting clinical observation hours abroad can be a transformative experience. Students often come away with new insights into global healthcare challenges and can speak eloquently to the differences between the patient experience in the United States and abroad. It is vital, however, to understand the limitations of what you can and cannot do while abroad; we like the saying, “If you can’t do it here, you shouldn’t do it there!”. Before embarking on an abroad experience, please carve out some time to read this article and work through the Global Ambassadors for Patient Safety online module so that you position yourself to have a safe and ethical medical internship.

CCI Pop-Up Quick Questions in the AFC WEDNESDAYS from 7:00-9:00 PM

If you’re not able to get to CCI during the regular Quick Question hours, Paola Meza, CCI Peer Career Advisor (PCA), will be hosting September Pop-Up hours in the AFC Wednesdays from 7:00-9:00 PM. Find her there to:

  • Develop and review resumes and cover letters
  • Search for internship and employment opportunities
  • Prepare for interviews
  • Access resources like Handshake
  • Refer you to appropriate CCI advisors

Paola in her own words: “Hi! My name is Paola, and I am a senior studying neuroscience and Portuguese from Los Angeles, CA. Outside of the classroom, I serve as co-founder and president of UR-STEM and as a program leader for First@Midd.

However, most of my professional growth has taken place at the Open Door Clinic in Middlebury. Since the fall of 2015, I have been working as an administrative assistant and medical interpreter for Latinx migrant farm workers. Throughout the past three years, I have acquired clinical shadowing experience, a glimpse into health care management, and a new perspective on the disparities that shape care in underserved communities.

Increasing access to equitable health care for all people, especially marginalized people, has always been on the forefront of my career interests. To gain an understanding of care delivery in a larger context, I interned as a Posse Ubben Fellow at the Children’s Health Fund in New York City, a national organization aimed at providing America’s most disadvantaged children with high quality care. I worked on the CHF’s project to reduce health barriers to learning under the supervision of President Emeritus and co-founder Dr. Irwin Redlener and Executive Vice President Karen Redlener. My interest in health care systems brought me back to LA this past summer as a USC Gehr Fellow, where I participated in projects relating to health care systems science and issues of access that my hometown faces.”

Paola is an wonderful resource and we are thrilled to have her part of our CCI team!
