Professional Development and Post-Graduate Fellowships

Career Counseling

YHeLPS, the student arm of the Center, coordinates with the Career Development Office to support students who are interested in pursuing careers in health law. Events throughout the year highlight diverse opportunities for health-related summer internships and careers, and they allow students to network with professionals who work in hospitals, law firms, public interest organizations, and government offices.


Fellowships in Law & Public Health

Post-graduate fellowships provide additional opportunities to continue health law study and advocacy at the Law School. The Law School has hosted fellows working on projects such as an NIH grant related to HIV prevention and a study of dispute resolution mechanisms for conflicts and injuries arising from clinical research.

YLS post-graduate fellowship opportunities also include the Liman Program, which funds work in the public interest; the Heyman Fellowships, which fund post-graduate work in government; the Gruber Program for Global Justice and Women’s Rights, which funds post-graduate work relating to international justice and women’s rights; and the Yale Public Interest Fellowship Program.
