Welcome, or welcome back, to Vermont Health Careers. In honor of October being Health Careers Awareness Month, Vermont AHEC has given our health career exploration website a makeover. The VTHealthCareers.org website is intended for students interested in health and medicine and educators, counselors, and parents supporting young people in their thinking about college and careers.

Here are some of the new things you’ll find on VTHealthCareers.org:

  • A Health Careers quiz that gives you a place to start your exploration!
  • Focused information on occupations that are growing nationally and in Vermont.
  • Links to other credible, online resources to look at health careers even more broadly.
  • An updated list of postsecondary (after high school) health-related programs of study in New England.
  • Lesson plans and activity ideas for educators guiding young people to explore careers. Health careers are the focus, but much of the content can be adapted to exploring careers in general.

Keep an eye on VTHealthCareers.org for new content:

  • Free health career exploration events hosted by Vermont AHEC and our partners!
  • Interviews and video shorts with health professionals in a variety of occupations throughout Vermont.
  • Coming in January, 2023! Watch for information about 2023 summer opportunities to explore health and medical careers.
