Office of Alumni Affairs and Development

Whether facilitating volunteer efforts, an event or philanthropic support, the office is dedicated to serving and promoting the interests of current and future alumni, as they pursue their role as leaders in medicine, healthcare delivery, and the biomedical sciences. The office works closely with the alumni leadership of the Association of Yale Alumni in Medicine (AYAM), the Alumni Fund Board, and other alumni organizations to identify, create and implement alumni programs that serve and enhance the School's education, research and clinical missions.

Philanthropy plays an important role in the advancement of medicine and science. Gifts from private donors- alumni, friends, patients, corporations and foundations- support innovative research, clinical programs that bring the latest advances to our patients, and education for the next generation of physicians and scientists. We welcome your partnership in this important work. If you share our vision and wish to join us finding new approaches to unsolved challenges, contact one of our development officers. Each is ready to assist you in creating a gift plan that matches your philanthropic goals with giving opportunities at Yale School of Medicine.
