Office of Clinical Affairs

As the central clinical hub of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, the Office of Clinical Affairs is the authoritative source for clinical departments, fostering streamlined communication, enhanced coordination, and improved patient care quality. Our primary goal is to ensure the effective and efficient daily operations of all clinical departments. We oversee and manage all clinical practices at NJMS, including quality improvement, credentialing, physician oversight, HIPAA regulatory compliance, patient satisfaction, financial and operational management, and policy and procedure standardization.

With a dedicated team, we provide comprehensive support to over 300 NJMS clinical faculty members. Our goal is to cultivate an environment that fosters clinical instruction, advances medical knowledge, delivers exceptional healthcare services to the community, and supports the professional growth of our NJMS staff.
