Accessibility Accommodations

If you are having accessibility-related issues with any the content on our sites, please contact us at

The Office Communications video team produces short videos about topics that support the overall goals of the Yale School of Medicine. Additionally, we support the faculty and staff with video production services as needed for YSM related matters. Our team works with external production entities who wish to film on the medical campus and/or with faculty and staff to ensure proper protocol is followed.
