Yale Medicine Magazine

Yale Medicine Magazine was originally established in the 1950s as the medical school's alumni bulletin. Its articles cover discoveries in biomedicine, clinical advances, new ways of training tomorrow’s doctors, and the evolution of medicine and health care. The magazine has since broadened its readership to include the greater medical school and Yale University community, national and international media, individual benefactors and prospective donors, corporate and foundation officers, as well as the larger medical, educational and scientific community.
