Distinction Pathways

The Yale Department of Internal Medicine is thrilled to offer the Distinction Pathways. 

Our Yale residents are skilled clinicians with passions and talents in many extracurricular areas as well. The Distinction Pathways were created to foster resident interest and development in medical education (Clinician Educator Distinction), global health (Global Health & Equity Distinction), research (Investigation Distinction), and quality improvement (Quality Improvement & Leadership Distinction). Each distinction is marked by a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum to ensure a robust training experience. 

Current Yale residents who are interested in pursuing a distinction are encouraged to apply in the summer/fall of their PGY-2 year.
