Yale-New Haven is the primary teaching hospital for the Yale University School of Medicine. Some of medicine's brightest minds in heart disease diagnosis and treatment use decades of experience to treat patients and supervise the advanced training of doctors. How does this benefit you? In many ways. Teaching and learning spark better solutions to the complexities of heart disease. Each year a small percentage of graduates from some of the best medical schools in the world are invited to join the house staff at Yale-New Haven. These doctors are available around the clock, enhancing the care provided by the hospital's experienced team of cardiac nurses and allied health professionals. Yale-New Haven employs nearly 2,000 registered nurses, some of whom have advanced degrees and training in specialties such as critical cardiac care and patient education.
Research is an additional component of a world-class cardiac services program. Yale research often makes the latest treatments and technology available to Yale-New Haven patients before they're available elsewhere. Yale-New Haven is a regular participant in cardiac clinical trials.
