Please send all materials listed under requirements to Eliza Agustin.

Also, all applicants should submit an electronic application to YNHH Human Resources.

Training Permits

The state of Connecticut specifically recognizes PA residents in regulation regarding graduate medical education. Graduates of accredited PA programs who have not yet passed the PANCE exam and obtained full CT state licensure as a PA may still practice as PA residents under a state-issued training permit.

The Yale New Haven Hospital Emergency Medicine APP Residency is approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Connecticut Office of Higher Education for Veterans Education Benefits. YNHH is approved to certify qualified VA beneficiaries to use their VA educational benefits while enrolled in the APP residency program.
