Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Yale School of Medicine welcomes applicants regardless of documented or undocumented immigration status and endorses the values of the University as stated by President Peter Salovey in 2016:

Yale’s commitment to its students is long-standing, and I am dedicated to maintaining and strengthening the supports and resources we have in place. We admit students without regard to immigration status, and our financial aid policies assure that no student will be denied an education because of immigration status. These policies will continue.

If you have questions or concerns, please visit the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) website.

In addition to the M.D. Program, the Yale School of Medicine offers a Master of Public Health (M.P.H.), a Master of Health Science (M.H.S.), and a variety of other combined degree programs including the M.D.-Ph.D. Program.
