Starting with the Yale School of Medicine (YSM) graduating class of 2002, the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library and YSM Office of Student Research have collaborated on the Yale Medicine Thesis Digital Library (YMTDL) project, publishing the digitized full text of medical student theses on the as a valuable byproduct of Yale student research efforts. The digital thesis deposit has been a graduation requirement since 2006. Starting in 2012, alumni of the Yale School of Medicine were invited to participate in the YMTDL project by granting scanning and hosting permission to the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library, which digitized the Library’s print copy of their thesis. Work has begun on the planned transfer of the YMTDL collection from its current hosted location to EliScholar.

If you are interested in having your thesis digitized and made part of this collection, please complete the form and fax or email it back to the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library at (203) 785-5636 or
