Primary Care Residency Program

Welcome to the website of the Yale Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency training Program.  The content of this website is designed to provide prospective residency candidates with information about our values and goals as articulated in our mission statement, as well as details about our curricula and the specific educational opportunities and clinical experiences for our trainees.   

The overarching goal for residency training is to prepare each resident with a solid grounding in internal medicine in an environment that strongly fosters intellectual curiosity, a spirit of inquiry and camaraderie that embraces a biopsychosocial model of patient care and training. We seek to train physicians who desire a generalist background to their careers in medicine and who aspire to become agents of change in our rapidly evolving healthcare system, locally, nationally and internationally. Whether that career is as a general internist, a subspecialist, a policy maker, a practitioner, an educator or a researcher; the foundation of medicine and broad exposure to career mentors that are afforded our residents provides an outstanding opportunity through which these aspirations can be met.  We take most seriously our responsibility to assure that all of our trainees are outstanding clinicians who adhere to the highest ethical standards of the profession of medicine and to assist each trainee in exploring the broad field of internal medicine so that they will discover that niche of medicine which most ideally aligns with their talents, interests and skills. We seek to train physicians who will become leaders of medicine within their communities and to whom we would gladly refer ourselves and our families for healthcare.
