The Yale University School of Medicine is known throughout the world as one of the leading centers for biomedical research, education and advanced health care. Founded in 1810, the School of Medicine has grown to include every modern medical discipline. Its faculty includes some of the world's most respected scholars in medicine, public health and biomedical science.

A leader in research

Yale consistently ranks among the handful of leading recipients of research funding from the National Institutes of Health and other organizations supporting the biomedical sciences. The school's unique curriculum, known as the Yale System, promotes teaching in small seminar, conference and tutorial settings, and requires student self-evaluation, independent thinking and investigation.

A unique approach

Since 1839, Yale has required that each student complete a thesis based on original research prior to graduation. Graduates of the school have gone on to significant leadership positions in virtually every medical field, as well as many nonmedical areas.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Marnanel (talkcontribs)

Number of students[edit]

The number of students listed in the box (657) is significantly larger than the number of medical sudents at yale (probably <500, given that there are 100 students per class and four years in the standard curriculum). I think the currently listed number includes public heath masters students and physician associate students. Most viewers of the page would probably not realize this, and I suspect that those groups are not included on other medical school pages. The reference (from 2001) indicates that the number of medical + MD/PhD students was 487 in that year.-RustavoTalk/Contribs 03:33, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
