Welcome to Rutgers NJMS Radiology and thank you for your interest in our program!

The Rutgers NJMS Radiology Residency Program is now an enhanced joint program that combines all the benefits of the primary training site at University Hospital in Newark with supplemental rotations at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center in nearby Livingston, thus providing a comprehensive level of resident education in all aspects of diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology and nuclear medicine.  This combined program capitalizes on the clinical strengths of each institution, permitting a more diverse training environment and incorporating the best teaching faculty from each location into the overall residency program.

Leadership for the radiology training program:

Pierre Maldjian MD, Program Director at NJMS Department of Radiology

Luke Partyka, MD, Associate Program Director and Site Director at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center

Interested residency candidates should apply to the Rutgers Health New Jersey Medical School Radiology Residency Program using ERAS. In addition to the standard ERAS applications our program also accepts and reviews applicants’ supplemental ERAS applications.
