Inpatient Education

Three (3) Training Sites

  • Yale New Haven Hospital at our York Street Campus (YSC) – The Beeson Service
  • Connecticut Veterans Administration Health Care System, West Haven (VA) - VA Firm (General Medicine)
  • Yale New Haven Hospital at our Saint Raphael Campus (SRC) - The Cooney Firm (Geriatrics), Verdi-5-North (General Medicine) and MICU-SRC.

Internal Medicine-Traditional Residency Program house staff receive their inpatient education primarily on two campus sites: Yale New Haven Hospital's "York Street Campus" (YSC) and at the Connecticut Veterans Administration Healthcare Center in West Haven (VA).

Yale New Haven Hospital's main hospital facility on the York Street Campus, the Children’s Hospital, the Yale Psychiatric Hospital and the Smilow Cancer Hospital structurally integrate all inpatient medical beds. This 1,541-bed hospital operated by Yale New Haven Health System is the fifth largest hospital in the United States and brings a unique opportunity for our Department and Academic Medical Center to positively impact the care of our community in an integrated and coordinated manner. For additional information visit the Yale New Haven Hospital website.

The Internal Medicine Service at Yale is named after Dr. Paul Beeson, one of the most illustrious figures in American medicine in the latter half of the 20th century, who was Chairman of Medicine at Yale from 1952 until 1965.

The Beeson Service at Yale New Haven Hospital's York Street Campus (YSC) occupies several floors of the East Pavilion, the several floors of the North Pavilion/Smilow (Medical Intensive Care Unit, Medical Step-Down Unit, Medical Oncology and Hematology services), and the 5th floor of the South Pavilion (CCU and Cardiology services). All services are well localized geographically. See Firm Structure in this section for more information.

In 2012 Yale New Haven Hospital acquired Saint Raphael Hospital in New Haven, now referred to as "Saint Raphael Campus" (SRC). The Saint Raphael Campus is a 511-bed hospital and is less than two miles from the York Street Campus. Internal Medicine-Traditional Residency Program house staff cover the Cooney Firm (Geriatrics) at SRC and can rotate on Verdi-5-North (General Medicine) and in the MICU-SRC, though the latter two services are primarily staffed by the Primary Care Residency Program and Yale Combined Medicine-Pediatrics house staff.

The Connecticut Veterans Administration Healthcare Center in West Haven, which is approximately five miles from our York Street Campus and accessible via shuttle, provides inpatient rotations for our house staff that are organized to take advantage of the breadth and depth of clinical care provided across these campuses in alignment with the distribution of clinical programs, centers of excellence, and faculty expertise.
