Is there a Pre-Interview Dinner?

Our residents host a social gathering for candidates and any accompanying guests the evening prior to each interview day.  These informal gatherings start at 6:30 PM at a restaurant in the downtown New Haven area and provide a great opportunity to meet members of the housestaff in a casual and relaxed environment. You will receive an email with details about location the week prior to your interview from the resident who is hosting the get together.  The format is intentionally informal with lots of passed food, non-alcoholic drink, wine, beer, and adequate space to mingle and meet and interact with numerous members of the Yale Primary Care Residency Program.

Where Does My Interview Day Begin and End?

Each Interview Day, doors will open for Registration at 7:15 a.m. and we'll begin the day promptly at 7:30 a.m. in the Beaumont Room.  Please refer to our Yale Medical School Campus MAP or an interactive Yale School of Medicine Campus Map.   Information about "Parking" is described below.

Your day is likely to conclude around 4:00 p.m., so please do not make travel arrangements before this time. We always encourage applicants to give themselves plenty of time after the interview day finishes to travel to their next destination.
