Fellowship Program Overview


As of July 1st, 2013, New Jersey Medical School (NJMS) is affiliated with Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, becoming one of the United States’ largest, most comprehensive university-based centers for studying and improving human health and health care. NJMS was previously part of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ).

The Rutgers New Jersey Medical School - Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine training program includes three major hospitals in Northern New Jersey:

University Hospital

Veterans Affairs - New Jersey Health Care System 

Hackensack University Medical Center

The program provides excellent training in Pulmonary and Critical Care medicine.  Valued characteristics of the program include the breadth of clinical experience, outstanding clinical and research faculty as well as opportunities for trainees in research and teaching. In addition to the training sites above, the program maintains a close relationship with the Global Tuberculosis Institute, in Newark, NJ. Many globally recognized members of GTBI serve as clinical faculty for our program, further enriching the training experience.

The training program includes three hospitals, each bringing its own diverse experience. University Hospital is a tertiary facility, dedicated to providing health care to the local Newark community as well as serving as a referral center for the greater NJ/NY region.

NJMS and University Hospital are home to a Level 1 Trauma center, a Liver Transplant program, a research-driven Cancer Center and a unique program in Neuromuscular Disease and chronic respiratory failure, as well as many other highly regarded programs.

The VA - New Jersey Health Care System is located in East Orange, NJ and was recently selected as a site for the Center for the Study of War-Related Illnesses.

Hackensack University Medical Center is in Hackensack, NJ and is the largest provider of inpatient and outpatient services in the state. HUMC has been recognized nationally for its innovative patient care and has consistently been ranked as one of the best 50 hospitals in the nation by US News and World Report.

These teaching facilities each provide outstanding training and together create a comprehensive experience for our Pulmonary & Critical Care trainees

We are very proud that our graduates have proven themselves to be outstanding clinicians, educators and researchers, and are well-recognized in the field.  Nearly half of our recent graduates have gone on to gain further training in sleep medicine and interventional pulmonology, and many remain in the NJ/NY metropolitan area in practice.
