As valued members of the Yale medical community, we welcome a continued relationship with former House Staff and Fellows, and many former House Staff maintain close ties with the department where they trained.  Former House Staff are encouraged to keep contact information current with the Yale School of Medicine Alumni Office and / or individual departments in order to receive publications, updates and invitations from the School and specific departments. 

Former House Staff are not considered Yale University “alumni” because they did not matriculate in degree-granting programs of Yale University.  For this reason, former House Staff are not eligible for the benefits offered by the Association of Yale Alumni.  

To receive news from YSM, former House Staff should contact the alumni affairs office. Many YSM departments also have informal and formal alumni programming, and House Staff are encouraged to be in touch with them also.

Yes, any member of the Yale community, including alumni, may use the facilities of the YSM Library or other University libraries.  Alumni and others may use the Library’s electronic resources in the Library’s on-campus locations, but due to contractual limitations, do not have remote access.  One exception is JSTOR, a digital archive of more than 1,000 academic journals. Yale alumni can register for access to JSTOR by going to http://www.aya.yale.edu/content/jstor-access.  Of course, alumni and others have access to the stacks and may borrow materials from the Library; in some cases small fees are charged for these services.  Full details are available at http://www.library.yale.edu/circ/index.html.  For more information about Library policies, collections, or other resources, please contact the Library at its on-line “help desk” at http://ask.library.yale.edu/

The Center for Continuing Medical Education at the Yale School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.
