Find a Faculty Mentor by Department:

This page lists faculty mentors by their primary department at the Yale School of Medicine. This is most helpful for students looking for a mentor in a general area of study, but who do not know a specific faculty name or research topic yet.

Click a department and the list of faculty will refresh below. You will be able to view some of their research interests directly from this page. Read more about each faculty member by clicking their name to view their full profile.

Scan the page for a specific keyword by using the find feature in your browser:

  • On a PC: use CTRL+F
  • On an Apple: use COMMAND+F

Not all faculty members are able to take on thesis students at this time. However, when you select a specific individual from this list and view the profile, there are two ways to find others interested in similar topics:

  • Co-Authors: The profile may list faculty members with whom they have co-authored publications
  • Research Interests: These keywords are linked to others working on those topics.
