Rotation Sites

Yale Physician Associate students complete their clinical rotations in a variety of clinical venues. Inpatient settings include tertiary care hospitals, community hospitals and long term care facilities in the State of Connecticut. Outpatient experience is gleaned from rotating in community health clinics, the University health plan, the mobile health van and in some instances private practice settings. All of the mandatory rotations and most of the elective rotations are completed in the State of Connecticut with the exception of primary care sites in Maine and Kentucky.

Institutions such as Yale-New Haven Hospital, the Yale Health Plan, the Hospital of St. Raphael’s and the Fair Haven Clinic are within the city limits of New Haven. Clerkship sites within a 30 minute commute of New Haven, include Bridgeport and Waterbury Hospitals.
