Applicants Often Ask About ...

Patient Population

Diverse case mix comes from Greenwich and surrounding Fairfield and Westchester counties. Most social and ethnic groups are represented. Rare cases that are worthy of publication in medical literature are encountered at Greenwich Hospital and Yale New Haven Health tertiary care sites. Hospital and program leadership are fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion through system-enhanced initiatives to support residents, staff, and patients.  

Yale School of Medicine Affiliation

Formally affiliated since 1975. Over 110 contact sessions each year between Yale faculty and Greenwich Hospital residents. Elective time may be scheduled at Yale (only in PGY II and PGY III years). Yale students rotate at Greenwich Hospital on inpatient and outpatient rotations. 

Resident Responsibility

Residents are expected to write all orders on their patients. Resident surveys demonstrate satisfaction with the level of decision-making autonomy provided by the program.


There are over 100 Greenwich Hospital internists representing all specialties who directly support the residency program, including nine who dedicate 100% of their professional effort to the education and welfare of the residents. 

Academic Hospitalist Program

Hospitalists provide direct patient care and teaching for patients on resident inpatient floor services. In addition, two of three teams are managed by academic hospitalists dedicated to medical education. 

Resident Wellbeing

Ancillary support services are available 24 hours a day. Comfortable on-call rooms with lockers, networked computers, and televisions. Hospital housing offered to both one-year preliminary and categorical residents. Monthly meal stipend for overnight calls and teaching conferences. Newly designed dedicated resident lounge and resident workrooms. Financial support for electives taken at Yale, research endeavors, and board review courses. Four free wellness afternoons offered for self-care during outpatient ambulatory medicine rotations. Opt-out Wellness Check-ins with Employee Family Resources program, Yale Resident-led Housestaff Wellness Council with dedicated Faculty Advisor.

Simulation Center

Greenwich Hospital actively incorporates simulation as an education strategy. SYN:APSE simulation center, as part of Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS), provides hands-on training to prepare trainees for the challenges of complex medical management. The facility has high-fidelity mannequins with sophisticated audiovisual systems and multiple camera views, in addition to simultaneous on- screen viewing of video and patient vital signs. The debriefing is designed to facilitate discussion and encourage participants to evaluate their own performance.

A Point of Care Ultrasound simulator is also used to augment Mega – Code simulations and hands on POCUS education. 

Chief Resident Opportunities

The Greenwich Hospital/Yale University Program selects one PGY-4 chief resident every year. Resident physicians apply during their PGY-2 year. Clinical responsibilities of the position are primarily ambulatory (outpatient internal medicine), but well-established opportunities exist to “moonlight” on the Greenwich Hospital internal medicine hospitalist service. Most of our PGY-4 chief residents have been Greenwich Hospital internal medicine residents (“internal candidates”) for the position, but outside candidates from other residency programs are encouraged to apply. In addition to clinical duties, the chief resident serves as a junior faculty member in our residency program and typically achieves a voluntary faculty appointment as Clinical Instructor of Medicine at Yale School of Medicine. Our most recent PGY-4 chief resident matched into Cardiology fellowship at the NYU – Long Island School of Medicine.
