Leaving Yale


Upon completing a postdoctoral position, you may request a certificate acknowledging their training by contacting their departmental business office 1 month prior to departure. Certificates are available only to postdoctoral fellows and associates and are not intended for postgraduate or clinical trainees. 

Exit Survey

Upon leaving Yale, we ask that you complete our exit survey.  The survey is painless and takes about 15 minutes to complete. The survey enables you to rate your experience and describe your career plans.  Completing the exit survey also initiates invitations to join 3 important organizations:

  • The Yale Career Network.  Communicate with Yale alumni from around the world.
  • The Office of Career Strategy.  Gain access to job opportunities collated from employers who seek out Yalies.
  • The Association of Yale Alumni. Gain alumni status from Yale and receive an aya.yale.edu email alias. (It may take several months for the AYA to send out an invitation.)

We will contact you by email within a few weeks of your departure from Yale to invite you to take the surevy. If you have already left Yale, you can access it at https://yalesurvey.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_7U00yQ27Pt2gN9j

Please note: You will be asked to authenticate your identity by entering your Yale NetID. The NetID does not need to be active to complete the survey.
