The educational program is designed to develop physicians who are highly competent and compassionate practitioners of the medical arts schooled in the current state of knowledge of both medical biology and patient care. It is expected that Yale-trained physicians will establish a lifelong process of learning the medical, behavioral, and social sciences by independent study. The aim is to produce physicians who will be among the leaders in their chosen field, to sustain and improve health and to alleviate suffering caused by illness and disease, and to provide outstanding care and service for patients in a compassionate and respectful manner.
