Making A Difference

Why is philanthropic support important to Yale School of Medicine Department of Surgery? Because, at no point in history has medical research made advances at the current breathtaking pace. We seek donors who wish to participate in pushing the boundaries of medical and surgical knowledge in ways that will benefit all of our patients. Gifts from individuals, grateful patients and families, corporations, and foundations allow our physician scientists to apply their energy and expertise to the pursuit of new and novel innovations in a wide range of surgeries and trauma management. By supporting Yale Department of Surgery, you invest in our tripartite mission to provide world-class patient care, train the best and brightest surgeons of the future, and conduct cutting-edge research that translates to better health care for all.


Patients often express a desire to demonstrate their support of our mission in research and patient care. If you are interested in such participation, please contact Dr. Clarence Sasaki at 203-785-2592. Any such funds donated to Yale School of Medicine or Yale-New Haven Hospital would be tax-deductible and can be directed to the Head and Neck Surgical Research Fund in care of Dr. Clarence Sasaki.
