Thank you for your recent e-mail regarding theSo let's write directly to Robin and explain that why this won't cut it. . Dean Alpern has asked the Office of Public Affairs to respond, since you refer to a recent news release which we issued.
The Yale MD/PhD Program is funded by many different public, corporate and private sources. However none of the donors can influence the content - or compromise the quality - of the program, which is considered one of the most rigorous in the country. For almost 200 years, the Yale School of Medicine has maintained the highest standards of academic and research integrity. The nutritional research conducted by Yale clinical scientists addresses important diseases including metabolic syndrome, diabetes and obesity.
Only through the generosity of our many donors can Yale School of Medicine continue to push the frontiers of clinical research and translational medicine.
