My name is Tim Plante and I'm an assistant professor/clinician investigator at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont (UVM). After completing medical school at UVM in 2011, I traveled to the mid-Atlantic for medicine residency at Georgetown and a general internal medicine fellowship at the Johns Hopkins University, where I was a trainee in the Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology, and Clinical Research while completing a MHS in clinical epidemology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. I have practiced primary care in the past and am currently practicing in an outpatient multidisciplinary thrombosis clinic and on the inpatient hospitalist service at the University of Vermont Medical Center.

I'm a co-founder and an editor-in-chief of WJC, which I started with my good buddy Dave Iberri. Dave and I first met in medical school at UVM where we developed a wiki for our foundations courses. WJC was developed as an IM residency project while I was at Georgetown and Dave was at Stanford. You can read a bit on the background of the project in this piece on the UVM Medicine blog.

My interests are primary care, med ed, CVD epidemiology, EBM, and the use of technology in medicine. @tbplante
