About Me

Dr. Ulager is a board-certified family physician. He lives with his wife and four children outside Burlington, Vermont. He provides primary care services from early childhood through adulthood and senior care, incorporating a faith-based approach to both medical and mental health needs. He is particularly interested in the intersection of spiritual, physical, and mental health, and specifically in helping patients discern the roles of both medical and non-medical therapy (exercise, dietary changes, counseling, prayer, community, etc) in maintaining their physical and mental health. By far, his favorite thing about practicing medicine is the opportunity to develop strong relationships with patients over time. “It is only in working to understand who people are at a deeper level that helps us to understand what they most need.”

Jim graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1999, then went to medical school at The University of Pennsylvania, where he met his wife. They moved to Vermont in 2004 to complete medical training, and have practiced in the area since. After finishing residency, Jim worked in private practice for three years, then joined the University of Vermont Medical Center as an Assistant Professor and held leadership roles, including Associate Vice President of Clinical Operations, and Physician Lead for Provider Well-being. While tremendously difficult to leave his practice of 14 years, he is very excited to join MyCatholicDoctor, where he also serves as the Chair of our Board of Advisors.
