Assistant Professor; Medical Director, Chemical Pathology, Laboratory Medicine; Medical Director, Laboratory IT Services, Laboratory Medicine; Associate Director, ACGME Chemical Pathology Fellowship, Laboratory Medicine
The Department has a newly established Clinical Chemistry Fellowship which began in July of 2017 for both a COMACC certified program (for either PhD Clinical Chemists or MD Chemical Pathologists) and an ACGME program (for MD Chemists). If interested in the COMACC fellowship, please go to our listing on the COMACC website for more information.
For the ACGME fellowship you may use the standardized CAP fellowship application as a replacement for our application, if you prefer. In that case, please be sure to include all the requested information on our application form (e.g., statement of your interest in clinical chemistry) in an appropriate place on the CAP form, as well as the additional data requested by the CAP form itself.
If using our form, please send a CV, statement of your interest in clinical chemistry and have letters of reference forwarded by three individuals - one of those letters should be from the Chair or the residency director of your prior training program.

The clinical chemistry ACGME-approved fellowship training program is a 1-year program based at the York Street campus of Yale-New Haven Health, Yale-New Haven Hospital. Yale-New Haven Health, primarily located in New Haven, Connecticut, is a non-profit, multispecialty (adult and pediatric) academic medical center that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education. It is one of the largest hospitals in the country with over 1,541-bed facilities and 7 million clinical chemistry test results/year. The chemistry laboratories are directed by the faculty of the Clinical Chemistry Laboratory within the Department of Laboratory Medicine at Yale School of Medicine. In addition to clinical chemistry, the Department of Laboratory Medicine also includes the disciplines of apheresis/cell therapy/transfusion services, blood banking, flow cytometry, hematology, immunology, microbiology, molecular diagnostics, tumor profiling, and virology.
The Chemistry Fellowship training program is structured to provide training in the service, teaching, and research aspects of clinical chemistry. This includes clinical training through structured rotations and research time in the Chemistry laboratory. By the end of training, the fellow will have experienced advanced clinical rotations and graduated responsibilities reaching the level appropriate for a laboratory director. There are also ample opportunities to conduct translational research through the Biomarker Translation Laboratory and the Program of Applied Translational Research at Yale University. The program structure is flexible to afford individualized training.
