Medical Student Education
We offer a variety of opportunities for students interested in learning about pediatrics at Yale School of Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics.
Pediatric Pre-Clinical Studies
As a Department, we are dedicated to providing trainees with outstanding educational experiences in the care of children starting as early in training as possible. During the first years of medical school, students will meet and learn from pediatric faculty during basic and clinical sciences courses as well as in the clinical setting. Opportunities include active involvement in the Pediatric Interest Group run by medical students and mentored by faculty in our department, the Buddies Program which matches students with pediatric patients having chronic diseases and in the context of clinical skills training.
