Welcome to the Yale Internal Medicine Residency Programs Diversity site!

The Department of Medicine at Yale 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 webpage has been created to afford residency applicants an opportunity to connect with current residents and/or faculty who share a common background, interest, or stage of life as well as to offer a sense of the scope of the diversity of our programs which we view as one of the hidden strengths of residency training at Yale. We are confident that no matter what your ethnicity, where you come from, whom you pray to (or don’t), whom you love, or what your professional and personal interests might be, you will find a home at Yale.

Underrepresented Minorities

Yale School of Medicine, Yale-New Haven Hospital and the Yale Department of Internal Medicine strive to recruit medical students from underrepresented backgrounds including a wide range of racial backgrounds. We believe that residents learn best how to care for a diverse population of patients when they themselves have the opportunity to interact and train with colleagues from a variety of backgrounds. It is through the eyes and experiences of others that we learn about who we are and how we are perceived. At Yale we provide access to rich cultural opportunities to connect with other professionals in and around the medical center and New Haven.
