Benjamin David Gallagher, MD, FACP, AHSCP-CHS

Assistant Professor of Medicine

I am an outpatient general internist with significant involvement in medical education and clinic administration. My main clinical interest is hypertension, about which I developed a curriculum for internal medicine residents at Yale that was recently adapted for a Continuing Medical Education audience. I have extensive experience mentoring the internal medicine residents I supervise at the New Haven Primary Care Consortium (NHPCC), and have also volunteered as a “mentor-advisor-coach” to residents in our program. For several years I was a “team attending” in the Wednesday Evening Clinic, where MD-PhD students and others in the Advanced Training Period take on a small panel of primary care patients and follow them for a year or more. I teach extensively in the pre-clerkship clinical skills course for medical students, and regularly lead workshops in the internal medicine clerkship and capstone course. From these experiences, I have a good understanding of the various stages of the Yale School of Medicine curriculum, as well as of what lies ahead in residency. As a longitudinal coach, I hope to be a source of advice and support as students make their way through their journey at YSM.
