Community Outreach

Yale Simulation Academy

The Yale Simulation Academy (YSA) is an innovative outreach program that exposes local, inner city high school students to a broad variety of careers and professional opportunities in the health care field.

Offered free of charge, YSA is a mentor-based, hands-on, interactive experience that provides a pathway for broadening access to and engagement in STEM learning experiences.

YSA focuses on a diverse student body, including students from economically disadvantaged families who might otherwise not have an opportunity to participate in this type of program.
