Career Paths of Graduates

Graduates of the Yale Internal Medicine Traditional Residency Program pursue a wide range of professional opportunities ranging from clinical practice to academic medicine, policy and industry. Approximately eighty to ninety percent of our residents match for fellowship and of those approximately 50% match for fellowship at Yale. At Yale we offer uniformly superb, highly competitive fellowship with NIH-funded training grants in all subspecialties.

Our residents receive guidance during career planning from the program director, associate program directors, and self-identified mentors. We also have developed a website which provides comprehensive information on a range of career planning issues, including creating a CV/resume, interviewing, finding the right job or fellowship, and contract negotiation. Called "Beyond Residency", this site compiles existing helpful resources from professional organizations and journals as well as personal advice from Yale Internal Medicine Residency graduates who share their experiences and guidance for succeeding during the process. For our current residents who would like to access “Beyond Residency,” please log-in via the Beyond Residency website.

Program alumni unanimously considered themselves “as well prepared or better prepared” than their colleagues for the positions they had accepted.
