Diversity in the Medicine Residency Programs

Program Directors' Message

The Department of Medicine believes that residents should have the opportunity to train with colleagues who share common goals and values within the profession of medicine, but who themselves represent a broad range of life experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives.

This section of our website is intended to ensure residency applicants have an opportunity to learn about the scope of the diversity, equity, and inclusion programs in our department as well as within Yale and the Greater New Haven community.

We are confident that whether you are from an underrepresented racial or ethnic background (e.g. Hispanic/Latinx, Black/African-American, Native American, or Asian Pacific Islander), a socially and economically disadvantaged background, or a sexual/gender identity minority you will find a home at Yale.
