Dr. Nate Wood is a third-year resident physician in the Internal Medicine/Primary Care Residency Program at Yale New Haven Hospital in New Haven, Connecticut. Prior to beginning residency, Nate studied Professional Culinary Arts at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York. As both a physician and culinary school graduate, he plans to dedicate his career to bridging the gap between doctors and chefs, firmly believing that what we eat can be simultaneously healthy and delicious.
Nate is particularly interested in media and education — using print, television, and other multimedia to engage both medical professionals and the general public in learning about healthy lifestyle interventions. His clinical and research interests include culinary and preventive medicine, medical education, nutrition, and healthcare communication.
Nate's ultimate goal is to combine his passions for medicine, food, education, and media to empower his patients to enjoy food in a healthy way. He will begin the Yale General Internal Medicine Medical Education Fellowship in summer 2022.
