Yale-Waterbury Internal Medicine Residency Program

About Our Program

Waterbury Hospital serves as the primary site of a Yale-sponsored internal medicine training program, Yale-Waterbury Internal Medicine Residency Program, joining the Department of Internal Medicine’s Yale Traditional, Yale Primary Care, and Yale Medicine/Pediatrics Residency Programs.

The residency curriculum, implemented by talented residents and faculty hailing from a diverse set of backgrounds, also includes the extensive resources and collegial environments of the Yale School of Medicine and Yale New Haven Hospital. Residents can partake in rotations at both Yale New Haven Hospital campusesand at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System in West Haven. As a Yale School of Medicine and Yale New Haven Hospital program, we offer our residents exceptional leadership, research, and global health opportunities. These experiences include participating in the Yale/Stanford Global Health Scholars Program [link:], the Yale Resident Fellow Senate [link:], , among many others. Many of our residents have been appointed to leadership positions as members of these programs since our program’s inception in 2014.

Thank you for your interest in our program and look forward to sharing more about our family. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
