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. Please email Hannah Benz (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.

This is an incredible opportunity for pre-medical students to shadow a world-renown Middlebury alum.
For 30 years, Dr. Rick Hodes ’75, has worked out of the basement of a crowded public hospital, treating patients with spinal deformities and heart disease, as well as a variety of other rare medical issues. The majority of these patients are impoverished children.
Over the course of his career, Dr. Hodes has forged strong partnerships to bring care to those in need. In 2006, he launched a spine program with Dr. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei of Ghana and his FOCOS organization. The program has grown from 20 patients to over 400 new cases every year, and performs over 100 surgeries annually in Ethiopia, Ghana, and the United States. As the senior consultant at a Catholica medical mission, Dr. Hodes has worked with refugees in Rwanda, Zaire, Tanzania, and Albania. He also works with the cardiac center at AIMS Amrita Hospital in Cochin, India to serve cardiac patients.
Dr. Hodes is a CNN Hero, holds 5 honorary doctorates, and was awarded Mastership by the American College of Physicians. To learn more about his inspiring work, you can watch one of the four documentary films about him, such as HBO’s “Making the Crooked Straight” or “Zemene,” or read Marilyn Berger’s book, “This is a Soul: The Mission of Rick Hodes.”
