Work life integration is critical to the well-being of those at Yale School of Medicine. The University's Work-Life and Childcare website has many resources to assist with different aspects of this. Understanding what is available can be enormously helpful.

Health & Wellness

With the many demands on professionals regularly and during the ongoing trying times, it is critical to maintain focus on health and wellness.

Yale offers many benefits to its faculty. Those that faculty are often looking for information about include:
