The Yale Section of General Internal Medicine includes over 100 full-time faculty who are committed to the core missions of research, education, clinical patient care, and community service of the Yale School of Medicine. Section faculty are based at Yale campuses located in New Haven, West Haven and Waterbury, Connecticut. The section is active in Education, Patient Care and Research. Our research programs focus on core issues in general internal medicine including the epidemiology and outcomes in common chronic diseases (cardiovascular disease, stroke, HIV/AIDS, substance abuse and cancer), health policy, medical education and the humanities. Several section faculty lead major educational programs for Yale medical students, residents and fellows. Our clinical program includes five primary care clinics, along with specialized programs in areas such as occupational health and substance abuse. Our faculty also oversee major inpatient services at our three hospitals.
Community programs of the section are an outgrowth of our research, educational and clinical programs. Community-based research programs in areas such as substance abuse, occupational medicine, and chronic disease management provide unique service opportunities for members of the greater New Haven community. In addition, educational programs including the Transitions Program provide outreach to our neighbors. Each of our clinical sites including over five primary care practices contribute significantly to the care of the underserved in our community while providing valuable educational experiences for our trainees.
The Section of General Internal Medicine includes a vibrant and diverse group of faculty who are national leaders in their respective fields and are committed to excellence and scholarship in research, education, clinical care and community service.
