GME Office Overview

Welcome to the Graduate Medical Education (GME) Office and House Staff Office (HSO). We provide Yale New Haven Hospital residents and fellows, and their families, with a wide range of information and assistance, on everything from applications and orientation to payroll and benefits. We also deal with issues regarding compliance, accreditation, visas and other matters.

Our Mission

Overall, the GME Office and House Staff Office help ensure exemplary training programs for our residents and fellows. We serve as the Ombudsman's Office for trainees in specialty and subspecialty programs, as well as the Training Program Liaison for the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).

The House Staff Office serves as the personnel and payroll office for residents and fellows receiving paychecks from Yale New Haven Hospital. The GME Office, through the various program directors, will verify training, licensing and loan deferment forms for the subspecialty fellows who are paid through Yale University.
