Important Update:

As part of the partnership of Rutgers Biomedical Health Sciences with RWJBarnabas Health, the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency program (NJMS) has merged with the Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center residency program (CBMC). This merger started with the residents recruited in 2018-2019 and completed this last academic year. All residents currently in the program were recruited into the combined residency program and have been rotating at both NJMS and CBMC. Going forward all residents will be recruited through the Rutgers Health Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center Residency Program (ACGME ID# 2203312163). Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Looking forward to meeting with you,

Lisa Pompeo, MD
