In addition to submitting an application through ERAS, applicants for Yale's ABIM Physician-Scientist Research Pathway should send an email to Dr. John Wysolmerski, Director of Yale's ABIM Physician-Scientist Research Pathway, and Tatianna Hilton, Administrative Assistant, with the following information:

  1. Statement of interest in the Yale ABIM Physician-Scientist Residency Pathway.
  2. Areas of possible subspecialty interest so that appropriate interviews with fellowship program(s) can be arranged at the time of residency interviews.
  3. Names of Yale faculty identified as possible research mentors (not required).
