Mission Statement

The Yale Department of Internal Medicine strives to provide outstanding, compassionate, and equitable care to our patients. We are dedicated to the development of new knowledge through innovative basic biomedical discovery and rigorous clinical research, and to translating these discoveries into novel therapies. We aspire to train and inspire the next generation of leaders in medicine through education that fosters creativity and a personal commitment to excellence, and that endows our trainees with exemplary skills and attitudes for a life's work in medicine.

Our department is committed to cultivating an inclusive, collaborative, and professional culture that respects individual differences, recognizes and rewards diverse talents, and helps each person reach their full potential.
