Nearly 900 Yale School of Medicine theses are now available through Yale University’s online institutional repository known as EliScholar. These include “current” theses published in the last decade that have come out of embargo as well as several YSM alumni theses published as far back as 1952. These theses document the rich research done by Yale’s medical students, and can provide a starting point for current medical students embarking on their projects. We’re also pleased to make this part of our collection more openly accessible to researchers in general, as the print theses are stored in locked stacks at the Medical Library. Current YSM students can browse this collection for examples of what a YSM thesis looks like.
