Dr. Houser chose Middlesex with a goal of preparing for rural practice. She participated in both our Behavioral Medicine and Academics and Leadership Tracks of Excellence, including completing the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) Medical Student Education Fellowship. She was active in several research projects in the areas of resident wellness and the use of biofeedback in treating anxiety, and gave 10 presentations at national meetings during her time with us. She served as Co-Chief Resident during her final year at Middlesex. After graduation she entered rural practice at a Community Health Center in Plainfield, Vermont where she provides outpatient, inpatient, procedural, and advanced behavioral health care. She is active teaching medical students both in her practice and at the University of Vermont.
