Live Well. Learn Well. Be Well.
Parton Center promotes student well being. Our excellent medical, counseling, and sports medicine staff are here to help you if physical, emotional, or interpersonal issues become a problem. In addition, we have a wealth of health and wellness resources to support you as you navigate a demanding academic and social schedule.
Our medical staff provides comprehensive acute health care for Middlebury students in order to assist them in meeting their health needs and to increase health promotion, health maintenance and health care access.
Counselors strive to promote, enhance and support students’ emotional and interpersonal well-being within a safe, confidential environment through a range of mental health services.
We provide traditional athletic training and sports medicine to students who are members of College intercollegiate teams, students who are candidates for intercollegiate teams beginning one month prior to the start of their competitive season, and to students who are members of rugby or crew. Students who fall outside these guidelines may seek care through Health or Counseling services described above, at Porter Hospital, or by a doctor of the student's choice.
Health and Wellness
We provide health information, workshops, and discussion groups focusing on topics such as eating disorders, sexually transmitted diseases and AIDS, alcohol and drugs, sexual violence, nutrition, wellness, stress reduction, and conflict resolution.
Costs of Services
Services provided in our offices are free. If your medical or mental health needs require a referral to a community specialist or other health care provider, that provider will bill you for services. For this reason, all students are required to maintain health insurance. If you do not have health insurance, you may purchase insurance through the College.
