Academic Progress

  • Yale School of Medicine recognizes the special importance of academic advising and career counseling for medical students.  The Academic Advising Program provides academic and career guidance to medical students while contributing to their professional development.
  • In July of the fourth year, students who are planning to graduate should sign up with the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). In February, students will give the NRMP their lists of residency programs in which they’re interested. Any student who decides to take a fifth year or chooses a career that doesn’t require residency training may withdraw from the match.
  • The Registrar provides a range of services for students and administrators at the medical school in the areas of academic records, student status, registration, enrollment, scheduling clerkships and electives, transcripts, degree verification, and contact information.
  • The registrar can provide enrollment and degree verification for current Yale School of Medicine students and graduates with the Doctor of Medicine degree ONLY.
