Applying to Our Program
Residency program applications will be accepted and reviewed only via ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). Applications will be accepted beginning in September for the Match that takes place the following March.
The educational philosophy that drives our Internal Medicine program is based on the notion that there are three key components essential for successful maturation as a medicine resident: an economically and culturally diverse patient population; a supportive faculty who serve as role models providing superb care for their patients; and progressive opportunities to increase responsibility for management of patient care. The residency strikes what we believe to be the perfect balance between inpatient education and ambulatory training, the latter representing approximately 1/3 of the residency experience. In addition to general medicine and critical care, each resident in our program will rotate through every subspecialty of Internal Medicine. Ambulatory experiences in dermatology, ENT, gynecology, urogynecology, orthopedics, adolescent medicine, sports medicine, and medical rehabilitation round out the program. Each medical subspecialty strives to be a Center of Excellence. Learning how to teach is a crucial part of residency training. Medical students from Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and St. George’s University Medical School rotate through our department annually for Introduction to Clinical Medicine, required third-year clerkships and as seniors, for subinternships and electives. We also look forward to having students from our very own Hackensack Meridian Health School of Medicine at Seton Hall.
Over the past 3 years, 87.5% of graduates have passed the ABIM certifying examination on their first attempt. And while approximately half of our graduates have pursued careers in primary care and half have pursued fellowship training, in recent years a higher percentage are choosing fellowship paths. All are enjoying fulfilling and rewarding careers. Many have stayed or returned to practice at Jersey Shore.
