Medical Degree Programs
Yale School of Medicine offers numerous degree and joint degree programs. The majority of students at the school earn a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree, with about 20% of these students earning a joint MD/PhD degree.
Health intersects with every aspect of civic life and the study of medicine is not limited to patient care and biomedical science. YSM offers numerous joint degree programs in collaboration with other professional schools.
Yale has two pathways for aspiring Physician Assistants: the Physician Associate Program, which is based on the Yale campus, and the Physician Assistant Online Program, which combines online coursework, clinical rotations in students’ home communities, and three separate week-long immersions on the Yale campus. Both programs award an MMSc degree.
