Why Yale?


Testimonials from our Residents

The Welcoming Committee collected asampling of testimonials/reflections from our interns/residents for students applying to our Internal Medicine-Traditional Residency Program.  

Here are a few current intern/resident testimonial/reflection highlights...

Dr. Nicolette Rodriguez, PGY1:

"Being at Yale as an intern has truly been an amazing experience. The support and collegiality among residents is an environment unlike what I have ever seen or been a part of. As an intern the emphasis that my residents have had on my own work-life balance and wellness is more than I could ever have imagined."

Dr. Roger Kim, PGY2:

"For me, the question isn't necessarily why I chose Yale, but why I've wanted to stay at Yale. Ever since coming to Yale as an 18-year-old college freshman in 2006, I have been amazed at how such a large, world-renowned institution manages to maintain a small community atmosphere. Throughout my time as an undergrad and as a medical student, I have made lifelong friends, worked with tirelessly supportive mentors, and made the city of New Haven my home."

Dr. Mary Grace Baker, PGY3:

"When considering different residency programs, I was looking for a program that demonstrated great academic rigor, opportunities for extracurricular development, as well as resident wellness and quality of life. My visit to Yale revealed that they share these same values."
