As Director of Yale’s Academic Hospitalist Program, Dr. Sarwat Chaudhry leads a dynamic group of physicians whose primary concern is providing outstanding care for hospitalized patients. 

The Academic Hospitalists provide care for patients hospitalized on General Medical, Step-Down ICU, and observation units at Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH), a 1,541-bed facility located within walking distance of the university campus. In 2014, U.S. News & World Report once again ranked YNHH as one of the best hospitals in the United States. YNHH also recently partnered with St. Raphael’s campus which is located within a mile of the New Haven campus. 

The team’s work spans a variety of areas, including cost awareness among medical professionals, understanding variation in costs at the hospital-level, optimizing care escalations for deteriorating patients, and enhancing care transitions. 

We invite you to get to know our group through their profiles on these pages and their published works.
