Orientation Registration

Registration

Postdoc Orientation is your guide to a successful Yale experience and will highlight the most important things you need to know as you start your training. Orientation is not only useful and fun, it’s mandatory! We offer orientation monthly, except for the month of December. Orientation is usually held on the third Thursday of the month from 10am-11:15am. Postdocs who arrive in December should register for the January orientation session.

Please register for an upcoming Orientation session via this link: Postdoc Orientation Registration

After you register, no confirmation email will be sent. We will send you a reminder a day before your session and will include additional information. Check your spam or junk mail folder if you do not see a reminder message from us. If you need to cancel/change your orientation date please e-mail Victoria Hallinan (victoria.hallinan@yale.edu).
