With over 25 YSPH-based research centers and programs, faculty labs AND the rest of the University's resources, you can work and study with mentors in your area of interest or explore interdisciplinary endeavors.

A Community that Changes the World

Through active engagement in dozens of student organizations and community groups, you won't need to finish your degree to start making a difference locally or globally.

The foundation of my career started at Yale where I learned the art of thinking globally and acting locally, where knowledge and wisdom of the faculty provided the lens to see commonality and yet appreciate the differences in approach to delivering public health services.
