Clubs & Organizations
Yale Medical Partners
Yale Medical Partners (YMP) is a Yale-sponsored organization for physicians and families associated with training and research programs at Yale-New Haven Hospital and its affiliates. YMP was established in 1979 to help families with their initial transition to the Greater New Haven area and to provide long-term support throughout training and beyond.
It is our goal to provide support for all members by offering a diverse array of social and recreational activities. Events are scheduled throughout the year and have included pizza parties, hay rides, brunches, wine tastings, and apple picking.
In addition, a number of clubs schedule monthly get-togethers. We also have weekly and monthly playgroups for children, and we support new additions to the family with "Helping Hands" carrying casseroles.
Members receive a monthly newsletter and a membership directory. Many people find these reasons enough to join, but the warm friendships developed through the group have proven to be invaluable during training years.
