Post Graduate Programs

Welcome to the Office of Graduate Medical Education (GME), the central administrative office for Rutgers New Jersey Medical School (NJMS) and School of Dental Medicine residency and fellowship programs.

Working in coordination with a network of affiliated hospitals, NJMS and NJDS provide the educational and clinical resources for an extensive residency training system. These programs provide the clinical education of medical and dental students, as well as clinical research opportunities and comprehensive primary and specialty care experiences.

In total, NJMS sponsor 48 residency and fellowship programs. All programs provide clinical experiences at NJMS affiliated hospitals and ambulatory care centers.

The GME office is responsible for essential administrative functions for residents and fellows, including the maintenance of permanent records, credentialing, processing payroll and loan deferments. This office also ensures that accreditation requirements, Rutgers policies, resident contracts, Committee for Interns and Residents (CIR) and New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners requirements are adhered to by all programs.

GME Staff is available to assist and answer any questions you may have regarding residency at New Jersey Medical School.
