Training Sites

Neurology residents at Yale obtain exposure to a broad range of neurological diseases. The Department of Neurology maintains active services at two major teaching hospitals, an in-patient rehabilitation center, and three outpatient clinic sites. Residents also have the option of rotating at several international sites, including England, Prague, and Puerto Rico.

Yale New Haven Hospital

Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH) has been the primary teaching hospital for the Yale School of Medicine since the hospital was incorporated in 1826. YNHH is now a 1,541-bed facility, making it one of the largest hospitals in the United States. There are more than 90 training programs and hundreds of residents and fellows.

Yale New Haven Health System includes hospitals throughout Connecticut, of which Yale New Haven Hospital is the largest. The system has more than 2,600 beds, more than 29,000 employees, and more than 7,500 medical staff. Moreover, it has had more than 150,000 inpatient discharges in Fiscal Year 2021.

While YNHH is a major tertiary research hospital that cares for patients referred from thoughotu the region, it also functions as a community hospital for the city of New Haven. Approximately 42% of the patients discharged reside in New Haven, and the majority of New Haven residents who are hospitalized receive their ongoing care at YNHH.

This means that neurology residents can get the “best of both worlds” when training at YNHH. Our residents care for patients with complex conditions, referred from all over the state and beyond, but we are also the first point of contact for patients from the local community who present for the first time with a neurological problem. Thus, our trainees have the opportunity to develop excellent core diagnostic and treatment skills while also staying on the cutting edge of advances in neurology.
