Community & Mentoring

The most amazing thing about the Yale MD-PhD Program is the community of students, staff and faculty who are part of our program! The career of a physician-scientist is not easy, and our community helps each of us get through the difficult moments of this profession and joins together to celebrate successes big and small.

**NEW** Bring an MD-PhD Student to Work Day

BRING an MD-PhD STUDENT to WORK DAY is a new initiative to give current MD-PhD students the opportunity to gain familiarity with different clinical specialties by shadowing Yale physican-scientists.

Physician-scientists from the among our alumni, MSTP faculty, Intraurban Clinical Club and Janeway Scholars have been invited to participate in this program as a clinical mentor to students who are currently in the PhD training phase. These students have completed the YSM pre-clerkship curriculum, 1-2 blocks of clerkship rotations, and are currently in the lab completing doctoral thesis research. Many have asked for opportunities to meet and shadow physician-scientists as a way to explore different (sub)specialties and build a network of clinical mentors by spending a half- or full day with faculty in various specialties and subpecialties at Yale.

MD-PhD students may access a Yale Tableau DASHBOARD using their CAS login credentials to find faculty whom they can join for clinic or in-patient attending services based on their availability.
