COVID-19 YSM Students
Just 10 days ago, in my first memo about our approach to COVID-19, I stated that students on clinical clerkships are an essential part of our caregiving teams. I, the clinical chairs, and your medical education leadership believe this to our core. Students track down data and identify the medical literature pertinent to the care of a patient, often educating attendings and residents alike. They may make discoveries in taking a history that others have overlooked. Over the years, medical students have cared for patients with communicable diseases such as tuberculosis, influenza, hepatitis, and HIV. Thus, it seemed plausible and important that our students should take care of patients infected with COVID-19.
In follow-up to President Salovey’s update on Yale’s response to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), I write to provide detailed updates specific to Yale School of Medicine. We continue to take proactive measures to protect the safety of our faculty, staff, and students while continuing to maintain our core missions as best as possible. We are benefitting from the expert advice and diligent work of our faculty in Yale School of Medicine as well as Yale School of Public Health.

In the right (lab) culture, mentorship flourishes — and science benefits
You might imagine a science lab looking a bit sterile and impersonal — little sunlight, masked figures in white coats pouring neon-colored liquid into beakers, all business. You might not expect to hear a science lab referred to as familial, where badminton tournaments, movie nights and barbeques are commonplace.

Student Spotlight - Elizabeth Lin
When Elizabeth Lin was in elementary school, news of over-population and housing shortages kindled a dream to be an engineer, building safe, energy- and cost-efficient high-rise buildings. In high school, Elizabeth participated in the Architecture, Construction, and Engineering Mentor Program (ACE) in Boston which helped her earn a 4-year scholarship to pursue a degree in civil and environmental engineering at UMass Amherst. Visiting relatives back in China one winter, she became deeply concerned about air quality, both indoors and out. Elizabeth started to wonder what she could do to help people understand air pollution and its impacts on their health and led her to work on personal exposure technology with Dr. Krystal Pollitt, who was then at UMASS Amherst.
