Access to the Cushing Center is Changing

December 19, 2023 - 1:46pm by John Gallagher

As part of a larger reimagining of the Cushing Center, we’d like to share our new mission statement:

The mission of the Cushing Center is to inspire wonder about the human brain and its disorders, to educate visitors about the history of modern neurosurgery, and to respectfully steward the remains of patients contained within the Cushing Brain Tumor Registry.

The Cushing Center will be closed January 8-9, 2024. Starting January 10, 2024 access will change: 

  • Yale students, faculty, and staff may request swipe access to the Cushing Center by registering on this Qualtrics form. Please allow 2 business days for your request to be processed.
  • YNHH employees must register on this Qualtrics form and pick up a pass at the circulation desk.
  • Members of the public are invited to visit the Cushing Center by guided tour only. Tours are available Fridays at 10am and 2pm and by request.
During your visit, please demonstrate respect for the patients and the specimens on display.
