    Statement on Diversity

    At the University of Vermont, the Larner College of Medicine recognizes diversity as a catalyst for success. UVM actively seeks the diversity and inclusion of students, faculty, and staff within the academic community, as well as those supported by teaching, science, patient care, and community engagement. Recognizing Vermont’s minimal ethnic and racial diversity, UVM must actively seek students, faculty, and staff to build a more diverse academic community than the State population. The university believes the College’s ethnic and racial diversity is a strength in teaching, science, and patient care, and UVM aims to cultivate culturally competent students and graduates who represent and appreciate the increasingly diverse communities that they will serve here in Vermont, nationally, and around the world. Following the University of Vermont’s commitment to supporting the people of Vermont and the College of Medicine, the faculty aims to educate and provide physicians for the state of Vermont. UVM will strive to inspire Vermonters to pursue medical professions and to actively recruit and train Vermonters who are more likely to stay and practice in the state. In establishing clinical training sites outside Vermont, UVM seeks to provide opportunities for access to a workforce and patient populations that are more diverse than the state’s population. The college describes ethnic and racial diversity following the ALANA (African, Latino /an Asian and Native American) classification of the University of Vermont. The university embraces diversity in its broadest ways, encompassing and addressing facets not only of racial and ethnic diversity but also of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, faith, belief, thought or ideology, disability, level of education, socioeconomic background, veteran status, and life experience. UVM aims to offer an education and a community that embraces and supports this greater diversity. The Common Ground at university is committed to building a culture that supports and encourages respect for each person, acknowledges and respects the diverse backgrounds. Since health cannot exist if fairness does not prevail, we are committed to expanding those ideas to the wider community by participating individually or collectively in promoting health equality and justice in the nation, state, country and world we live in.

Handy Tips for Good Performance in Medical College

    Believe in Yourself

    To believe in yourself you must first believe that you can do what you want. Scientists used to assume that the outside world was reacting to information flowing into the brain. Yet what we now learn, however, is that we are reacting to what the brain expects to happen next — based on previous experience. Success is all about making the most of what you’ve got. Performance is perseverance in the face of difficulty, it means rising to the task and pushing through when times are tough. A positive attitude is a key ingredient in University success. A positive attitude is a key ingredient in University success. Taking responsibility for making things happen, taking tasks through, and staying focused on your goals will all lead to success.

    Listen Actively in Class

    Taking notes from a lecture is a thought-out operation. Good listening involves paying attention, maintaining an interest in hearing the lecture and preventing the speaker’s premature judgment. Pay particular attention to the lecture’s beginnings and ends to gain a better understanding of its structure and key points, then summarize and predict the lecture’s course. Evaluate the ideas you hear, select important recording information and ask questions about what you are hearing. Evite the passive listener method of trying to “get it all” instead, listen to main ideas, key details and transitional phrases that contribute to the lecture’s structure and emphasis.

    Don’t Hesitate to Ask for Help

    If you ever feel overworked, stressed or just in need of advice or a friendly ear, your university likely has a plethora of resources on campus. Feel like you need help managing a heavy workload? Head to your university’s Student Success Centre or student’s union or make an appointment with an academic guidance counselor to search for help. Did you feel homesick, and burnt out? Don’t be afraid to reach out for advice to people you trust or to the student health services at your university. Mental health issues are becoming more common in students in particular, and nobody should be afraid to talk about them. Fortunately, society is slowly losing the stigma toward mental ill-health and steadily becoming aware of the importance of addressing campus mental health issues. There’s no shame in admitting you’re having a tough time and asking for help–sometimes all of us do and you’re not alone. Your physical and emotional wellbeing is so crucial to keep you on your feet and going forward so you can enjoy your university years to the maximum.

Dr. Najeeb Lectures are top notch. Comprehensive medical lectures of the utmost quality across all preclinical (and many clinical) topics. Fantastic for deepening one's understanding for clinical practice and licensing/board examinations.
Jacob Joseph Columbus, Ohio

Dr. Najeeb is the single most spectacular medical teacher you will ever have! I love this man. He has clarified everything from the coagulation cascade, immunology, neurology, and embryology. His sense of humor and brilliant illustrations make everything stick well in your memory. His ability to illustrate 3-dimensional relationships has been useful for excelling in anatomy. I cannot thank you enough for all the wonderful work you do. I recommend your lectures to anyone who wants to truly understand medicine!

I'm grappling with my online studies in Infectious Disease at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. It's made me realize what a visual learner I still am. So these vids are making what was murky crystal clear. While I am easily distracted when I have to do hours of straight reading, I am glued to the videos. I've looked for a series of such videos for months. A million thanks - Dr Najeeb has a true passion for teaching and can convey highly complex topics in an understandable and fun way.
