Application Dates

An electronic application will be available online in October each year. All application materials should be received no later than January 4, with interviews scheduled for late January/February. Incoming classes can expect to begin the program in early June to coincide with the Yale academic year.

Training Permits

The state of Connecticut specifically recognizes PA trainees 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 trainees 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.
