The UMD-NJMS Hoboken University Medical Center (HUMC) Family Medicine Residency Program was established in July 1998, out of an affiliation developed between the Department of Family Medicine at UMD-New Jersey Medical School and the formerly known St. Mary Hospital*  in Hoboken NJ. It is a fully accredited training site, and the only residency program at HUMC.

*St. Mary Hospital was taken over by the City of Hoboken on February 9, 2007 and its official name became "Hoboken University Medical Center (HUMC)".

The Department of Family Medicine is administratively responsible for the curriculum of the program. The overall goal of the program is to educate residents in the specialty of family medicine, while incorporating the principle of humanistic care and professional responsibility. An educational curriculum is designed to:

  • promote continuous, comprehensive and preventive care to all members of a family
  • teach understanding of the special needs of an underserved, urban environment
  • teach the concepts of quality improvement and cost-effective care
  • develop interviewing skills in a multicutural environment
  • develop practice management skills
  • promote the role of research in family medicine
  • assists faculty and residents in attaining personal and professional goals.

The UMD/NJMS family medicine residency program enables our residents to become competent, caring family physicians. Faculty at the residency program hold clinical appointments at UMD/NJMS and collaborate in joint research projects.
