BURLINGTON VT - Shelburne resident John R. Brumsted, M.D., was elected president of the Vermont Medical Society for 2008 - 2009 at the Society's 195th Annual Meeting on October 25. The Vermont Medical Society represents more than 1,500 physicians licensed in Vermont.
Dr. Brumsted is Chief Quality Officer for Fletcher Allen and served as Chief Medical Officer for Fletcher Allen from 1998 - 2005. He was Senior Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs at the University of Vermont College of Medicine from 2000 - 2006. Dr. Brumsted is also a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist with medical staff privileges in gynecology and reproductive endocrinology at Fletcher Allen.
During his inaugural speech, Dr. Brumsted discussed the VMS's legislative priorities for 2009 and the Vermont Blueprint for Health, a statewide chronic care initiative that Fletcher Allen actively supports.
"During the last 3 years, communities in Vermont have implemented improved diabetes care and prevention through provider training, expanded use of information technology, Clinical Microsystems training, self management workshops and support for community prevention programs," said Dr. Brumsted. "I'm personally involved in one of the Blueprint pilot communities and I feel they offer a great opportunity to provide primary care physicians with the necessary support and resources to treat their patients with chronic conditions in an optimal manner."
Dr. Brumsted received his medical degree from Dartmouth Medical School in 1978. He completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, at the University of Vermont.
