Yale School of Medicine Reviews
The Yale School of Medicine is a 4-year MD-granting program that is the sixth oldest medical school in the United States and the oldest medical school in the state of Connecticut. Yale’s educational philosophy is that students should engage in independent investigation; therefore, there are no grades or class rankings in the first two years. Yale students receive their medical education in a place of firsts. Yale was home to the first x-ray ever performed, the first successful use of penicillin, the first use of cancer chemotherapy, the first use of fetal heart monitoring, and many more innovations throughout history.
As a preeminent academic medical center that supports the highest quality education, research, and patient care, the Yale School of Medicine will:
Educate and inspire scholars and future leaders who will advance the practice of medicine and the biomedical sciences,
Advance medical knowledge to sustain and improve health and to alleviate suffering caused by illness and disease, and
Provide outstanding care and service for patients in a compassionate and respectful manner.
