Middlebury Primary Healthcare Seminar Opened to

Additional Students

The Primary Health-Care Interactions office at Middlebury

College will admit a number of non-Middlebury students to its

1998 program for college students interested in medical careers.

The program is designed to expose students who plan

to undertake a premedical curriculum in college to the realities

of primary healthcare practice. The program consists of two parts.

First, students participate in an intensive seminar about issues

in today’s healthcare professions; second, they spend a month

shadowing a practicing physician to gain an understanding of what

day-to-day medical practice is like.

Though the program for the most part enrolls only

Middlebury College first-year students, this year the program,

which begins on August 15, is open to students who are beginning

or are already enrolled in colleges other than Middlebury.

Interested students may receive information and application

forms by contacting Professor A. David Napier at 802-443-3149;

Professor Emeritus Edward A. Martin at 802-388-7697; or Administrative

Coordinator Martha Baldwin at 802-443-5324. The mailing address

is Primary Health-Care Interactions, Geonomics House, Middlebury

College, Middlebury, VT 05753.
