Welcome to the Yale New Haven Health, Bridgeport Hospital Department of Graduate Medical Education. While you may be here for a specific program, I encourage you to take a quick look at the other residencies and fellowships sponsored by Bridgeport Hospital. You will find an array of programs that will enrich your residency experience as well as introduce you to lifelong friendships.

Bridgeport Hospital is a major teaching hospital in the largest city in Connecticut. As a part of the Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS), the most comprehensive healthcare system in Connecticut, teaching is an integral part of our mission along with innovation and excellence in patient care, research and service to our community. You will find a dedicated and skilled staff: it is an honor to work with them.  

The catchment area we serve includes a diverse population in need of our expertise and compassion. Bridgeport Hospital takes care of this region: you are now a vital member of the team.

Yale New Haven Health is one of the most prestigious academic medical centers in this country. You will find a myriad of educational experiences at our campuses in both clinical and research arenas. There is no limit in the opportunities to learn.

It is certainly worth noting that you will be working within multidisciplinary teams that stepped up during the COVID-19 pandemic and courageously tended to our patients. What they experienced is unprecedented. These heroes will be your guides in the unpredictable course of this public health crisis.

I hope that you find this website informative. As you will see, there are email addresses and contact phone numbers should you have additional questions.
