In addition to our shadowing program, YMPO invites physicians and medical professionals to Yale to speak about topics important for anyone thinking about medicine. Lectures illuminate the personal aspects of medicine from the unique perspective of an engaging speaker.
The lecture series, which will consist of approximately three lectures, will differ each term. We encourage all that are interested to attend!
We also hold various other educational events throughout the year, such as suturing clinics and documentary screenings.
