We are proud to be ranked consistently in the US News and World Report "Best Children's Hospitals" in many subspecialties. We keep patients and families at the forefront, and decisions we make in the residency program are always driven by the question, "What is best for the children we serve?"​

All Yale Pediatric Residency training sites are committed to providing patient and family centered care. We also are proud to collaborate with the Center for Children’s Advocacy in a Medical-Legal Partnership designed to improve the health and welfare of low-income children and their families.

York Street Campus

Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital (YNHCH) is one of New England’s major referral centers for pediatric healthcare needs. Our core inpatient experiences occur at YNHCH’s York Street Campus. York Street provides inpatient, outpatient, emergency, primary, and preventive care to thousands of children each year.

York Street Campus houses offers strong tertiary and Quaternary care experiences including rotations through our:

  • Pediatric wards
  • Pediatric ED with strong simulation and point of care ultrasound programs and Level 1 trauma designation
  • Pediatric ICU with ECMO capability, neurosurgical and liver/kidney transplant services
  • Pediatric Cardiac ICU with robust cath lab, EP and cardiac surgery programs
  • Brand new Level IV NNICU with maternity in-rooming, ECMO capability, embedded MRI and in-unit OR suite
  • Bone marrow transplant and CAR-T programs
  • Multiple pediatric behavioral health units

Pediatrics residents have the full and complete responsibility for the care of all children admitted to the hospital. Patients admitted by the pediatric surgical service or surgical subspecialties are cared for in coordination with our surgical colleagues. Housestaff are supervised by members of the full-time faculty as well as pediatricians from the greater-New Haven area who constitute an active part-time faculty.

There is tremendous diversity of pediatric disease pathologies treated at YNHCH. Our physicians conduct research that is instrumental in developing new approaches to the management of childhood illnesses, new technologies for diagnosis and new therapies for treatment. The Yale pediatric resident is exposed to patients from every ethnic, social, cultural, and economic background who comprise both the inpatient and outpatient population in the Department of Pediatrics. Categorical Pediatrics residents rotating at York Street benefit from learning and working alongside Combined Med/Peds, Pediatric Neurology and Child-Adolescent Psychiatry co-residents who add unique perspectives to our ward teams.
