Remember back to your busy days as a medicine resident - the late nights on call at University Hospital, the feeling of camaraderie with your fellow housestaff, the compassionate and scholarly faculty who taught you.  Perhaps you were initially anxious or worried about your clinical skills when you first arrived here, wondering how would become the great physician you always aspired to be. 
 
Now think about where you are in your career today - successful, self-assured, and highly respected in the community for your clinical skills and knowledge.  We would like to think your years in the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School helped play a strong role in creating the great physician you are today.

Today, the NJMS IM Residency Program continues to provide cutting edge, premier training for over 120 residents annually, drawing on the years of experience and expertise of its expert faculty.  Our graduates are highly respected and sought after for fellowships and jobs, and play a critical role in improving the health status of the people of New Jersey and in communities around the country.

Despite our resounding success in producing excellent internists, graduate medical education has faced ever-increasing challenges over the years in the areas of funding, accreditation, and regulation. While Rutgers views graduate medical education as an important part of its mission, it is imperative that our program maintains a healthy ability to independently respond to special educational and training opportunities, when the need arises, and to support the continued professional development of our graduates.
