'May I cherish the joy of healing those who seek my help'

With those words from the Yale Physician’s Oath, members of the graduating class begin the next chapter of a life in medicine, enriched by their experience of the Yale System and close mentoring by faculty in the art and science of medicine. Their futures are made possible by the generosity of those who came before. Likewise, future students and patients will benefit from your planned gift to the school, which can be directed to research, clinical care, medical education, or scholarship. In all these areas, funds will benefit students, either through financial aid, curriculum and program development, research support, or expansion of clinical opportunities available to Yale medical students.
