About Community Medical School
The Community Medical School lecture series began in 1998 and was designed to provide people in the community with an opportunity to share in the medical learning experience.
Community Medical School is organized by an advisory committee of basic science and clinical faculty from the University of Vermont College of Medicine; a medical student; and members of the College of Medicine and Fletcher Allen communications departments.
The committee's goal is to choose timely topics and faculty recognized for their ability to present scientific information in an engaging, easy-to-understand style.
Attendance is free, but registration is strongly encouraged as classes fill up quickly. For more information about classes offered. please call (802) 847-2886.

Each lecture is videotaped for distribution to libraries and to public access cable television stations around the state.
