Association of Yale Alumni in Medicine (AYAM)

The Association of Yale Alumni in Medicine (AYAM) is comprised of all graduates from the Yale University School of Medicine, and those trained as interns, residents, and fellows in Yale’s postgraduate program. It serves as a link between the School of Medicine and its graduates and helps alumni stay in touch with Yale while providing opportunities for social interaction, networking and volunteer services.

If you have interest in being involved in alumni activities, or suggest a fellow alum who would be great to get involved, please complete our alumni volunteer webform. The Alumni Association also has several working committees you may join. With the exception of the Executive Committee, committee membership is open to any member of the alumni association. For additional questions or more information, please be in touch with us at or (203) 436-8551.
