Application Process

The Yale Palliative Medicine Fellowship currently has two fellows per year. Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Please contact Lisa Arnel, Fellowship Coordinator with specific questions.

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Have completed an ACGME accredited residency program.
  • Applicants from residency programs other than Internal Medicine and Family Medicine need to have a strong background with internal medicine training and skills. We aim to match the strengths of our program to fellow applicants to provide an optimal training program for each Yale fellow. In this light, fellow candidate ranking and selection will be at the discretion of the fellowship director.

The Yale program participates annually in The Match and begins to download and review applications from ERAS for each application cycle starting mid-July. Interviews are scheduled on set dates August-October. Match results are released in early December each year.
