Design Rationale

The coat of arms incorporated in our current publications was adopted by the Department in May 1996.

The upper portion of the school’s arms is the same as that for the Yale University School of Medicine. These are from the arms of Elihu Yale, the East India merchant and benefactor after whom Yale College is named. The upper arms consist of an ermine field, white with small black stylized tails and the red cross of Saint Patrick, called a saltire. The lower portion of the arms is the C.E.A. Winslow family coat of arms. It consists of a red diagonal bar running from the shield’s upper left to lower right and containing seven gold lozenges. Although the original Winslow arms was in a field of white, the EPH rendering is on a background of Yale blue.
