About Us

The School of Medicine's Web Group provides planning and initiatives for both the overall organization of the Yale School of Medicine (YSM) and the individual entities comprising it.

We offer web planning services to entities within the Yale School of Medicine, including website building and various applications that support the school's web needs. We address issues affecting the school and resolve them for the entire school by creating solutions and then allowing people to do the work for themselves. We are always here as a resource for any web initiatives or needs.
