Welcome to Yale Medical Professions Outreach

ysm logoThe Yale Medical Professions Outreach (YMPO) is an undergraduate program dedicated to broadening the horizons of all students interested in a medical career. Members enjoy the immense reward of learning more about the medical world directly from caring professionals in the field through first-hand clinical experience by shadowing a physician-mentor in their working environment. All interested students can also learn about medical and health-related issues through a lecture series offered every semester. Lectures include medically related volunteer and internship opportunities, an in-depth conversation with doctors from various medical specialties, and doctors who have used their skills for outreach work.  Additionally, we understand the importance of teamwork in medicine and work to foster a community of future doctors and leaders of the medical field through big sib/little sib programs and panel discussions.
