The Difference

NJMS is committed to educating humanistic, culturally competent physicians who will respect every patient regardless of race, ethnicity, economic status or language. Core values serve as the framework for learning for all NJMS students and include not only clinical and academic excellence, integrity, ethical and professional behavior but also compassion.

We are committed to fostering diversity in the medical profession and actively recruit students from backgrounds that are underrepresented in medicine. The Hispanic Center of Excellence, established in 1990, recruits students as well as faculty, building both the medical and educational pipeline for students underrepresented in medicine.
