We invite prospective applicants to learn more about our department and welcome current students and trainees to make use of this site. 

You can visit our full department site here: Laboratory Medicine.  

  • Residency Training

    Programs are available for residents in the combined Anatomic Pathology (AP)/Clinical Pathology (CP) Program, as well as for residents in either straight CP or straight AP.
  • The Department offers ACGME-accredited clinical fellowship training in three major areas of Laboratory Medicine: Blood Banking and Transfusion Medicine, Microbiology, and Hematology-Hematopathology.
  • Many of the faculty in the Department of Laboratory Medicine train Basic Science PhD, MD/PhD graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows in their research laboratories.
  • The Department of Laboratory Medicine is responsible for a number of classes of the Medical School. The department invites 4th year students from other U.S. or Canadian medical schools to apply to take the clinical rotation. Inquiries should be addressed to the Office of Student Affairs at Yale School of Medicine. General inquiries can also be made to the Laboratory Medicine Director of Medical Studies at marie.landry@yale.edu. Yale medical students are invited to apply to the departmental faculty to serve as mentors for the senior thesis. Students from other medical schools may also apply to individual faculty to carry out research projects. Yale undergraduate students may also obtain a research experience with any of the Laboratory Medicine faculty through the courses: Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry (MB&B) 470a and/or 471b, and Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology (MCDB) 475 and/or 495.

Medical Technologist Rotations

The Department offers rotations for Medical Technologist (MT) and Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT) students who are currently enrolled in Yale-New Haven Hospital affiliated degree programs at an accredited institution. The rotations emphasize high tech state-of-the-art laboratory experiences, including rotations in Molecular Diagnostics, Flow Cytometry, Toxicology and Proteomics, Stem Cell and Cellular Therapy, Molecular Microbiology, and Virology. The rotations are arranged in concert with the institution at which the student is currently enrolled.
