Yale Medicine was established in the 1950s as the medical school's alumni bulletin. It adopted a magazine format in the 1960s and evolved into a school-wide magazine. Full color, which had occasionally graced the cover, was introduced to the interior pages with the Winter/Spring 1998 issue and is now used throughout the magazine. In 2014 we adopted a new look and new approach with a redesign and themed issues that explore topics in medicine, biomedical science, and medical education in depth.
Yale Medicine has broadened its readership to include the greater medical school and Yale University community, national and international media, individual benefactors and prospective donors, corporate and foundation officers, as well as the larger medical, educational and scientific community.
The thrice-yearly alumni magazine, Yale Medicine Magazine, covers discoveries in biomedicine, clinical advances, new ways of training tomorrow’s doctors, and the evolution of medicine and health care.
