Student Health Services

Students training to become PAs are required to maintain health insurance coverage throughout their training. Students may elect to enroll as members of the Yale Health Plan (YHP), which is a prepaid health insurance plan with facilities located in the center of the Yale campus.

The YHP also offers a travel clinic to assist students who plan to travel abroad. Important health and safety information as well as immunization requirements can be found at the travel clinic. A full description of services and benefits is provided in the Student Handbook and is distributed to all incoming students during orientation. More information can be found at:

Please note: All students must have a physical examination and the requisite vaccinations prior to matriculation. For more details on required immunizations, visit the Yale Health Plan web page for new School of Medicine, School of Nursing and PA Program Student Forms.
