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.
