Is it possible to train doctors without hurting anyone’s feelings?
“I trained to be a doctor in the bad old days — not the worst old days, but the bad old days. Humiliation was part of the deal, sometimes deliberately inflicted by certain grandstanding, sadistic attending physicians, sometimes more casually, because everyone could see that you didn’t know something you should have known.”
CCI and the International Programs Office are collaborating to offer two study abroad information sessions for students in STEM and Pre-Health fields of study (this includes students who are taking Pre-Med courses as an undergraduate).

The Winter Term EMT Program is a credit bearing comprehensive, emergency medical internship that is co-sponsored by Middlebury College and Middlebury Regional EMS (MREMS).
The intensive month long program will provide students the opportunity to become nationally certified EMT-B’s. EMT skills may be used to provide medical support on the ambulance, at the Open Door Clinic and other College and community events.
The application process begins with students attending this information session, at which time you will learn about the program including the cost of the internship and complete a preliminary application. Once preliminary applications have been reviewed, students accepted into the program will be given three weeks to complete a series of tasks (form completion, immunizations, payment, etc). Students who fail the complete the application by the deadline will be removed from the roster and replaced with students on the wait list.
