The Yale-Waterbury Internal Medicine Residency Program, now in its third year, combines rigorous academic training with a nurturing community environment. Our residents benefit from access to the resources in education and research at Yale University while working and learning in an intimate community-based setting, under the guidance of a highly trained and dedicated faculty. House staff have their core inpatient rotations on the medical floors and Intensive Care Unit at Waterbury Hospital. Ambulatory medicine education is based at the Henry S. Chase Outpatient Center. In addition, residents have the opportunity to participate in a rich variety of elective experiences, both locally in the Waterbury community and at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Our goal is to train residents with the knowledge and skills they need to become outstanding physicians and leaders in Internal Medicine, and for those who wish to pursue subspecialty training, to provide a strong foundation for advancement to fellowship. This is an exciting time to learn and practice medicine. Rapid changes are occurring in health care delivery and technology. At Yale-Waterbury Internal Medicine Residency Program we have embraced the opportunity to create an innovative curriculum that prepares residents to meet new challenges in the health care environment and to excel in their careers.
