Diversity at Yale New Haven Hospital

Equity & Diversity Planning


Yale New Haven Health, Yale School of Medicine and Yale Department of Internal Medicine have a long history of supporting equality for sexual minorities. Long before Connecticut recognized same-sex marriage in 2008, Yale was a leader in equal benefits and recognition for same-sex couples. Our environment is a welcoming place for LGBTQI+ trainees, faculty and their partners and allies. There is a diverse and well-connected community throughout the University and the New Haven area. 

As Rolling Stone magazine wrote in 2001, “Yale University, in New Haven, Connecticut, has always been at the forefront of gay campus culture: What happens there tends to occur at other campuses a few years later.” We pride ourselves on the diversity of our department's training programs and we welcome the opportunity to connect applicants with LGBTQI+ trainees.
