Why Choose Inspira for Your Residency or Fellowship

Mentorship from World-Renowned Medical Practitioners

The physicians, surgeons, nurses and multidisciplinary staff Inspira residents work side-by-side with each day are leading experts in their respective fields. With decades of combined experience, our talented clinical staff provides world-class medical training coupled with insightful guidance on how to thrive as a medical professional. Through clinical training, one-on-one coaching and mentorship, and didactic teaching techniques, our team will prepare you for a future in private practice, academic practice, or further training in your desired subspecialty.

Opportunities to Treat a Diverse Patient Population

Many competing residency programs are restricted to university-based environments. Through several partnerships with area hospitals and universities, Inspira takes both a university- and community-based approach. Our residents get exposure to a wide range of medical cases by practicing within our diverse and often underserved communities. These programs are smaller than those offered by large universities and contain fewer residents, which allows our clinicians to provide more in-depth, hands-on training in a unique setting.

Access to Resident Wellness and Stress Management Programs

Training to become a health care professional takes a great deal of strength, stamina, mental fortitude and most importantly, support. At Inspira, we understand that the rigorous requirements residents must meet can result in stress and fatigue. That’s why we created the Resident Wellness Committee: to foster a compassionate learning environment where wellness is a priority. We are advocates for the health and well-being of all residents, and offer access to various support services, including mental health programs and monthly gatherings on preventing burnout and depression.

Convenient Living in South Jersey

Inspira’s Medical Centers in Mullica Hill and Vineland offer residents the best of both worlds: quaint small-town living with easy access to major metropolitan areas and attractions. Our programs are located in close proximity to Philadelphia and the Jersey shore, with New York and Baltimore less than 100 miles away. The region boasts a variety of different options for outdoor recreation, fine and casual dining, shopping, entertainment and more. Residents often choose to reside in downtown Philly, suburban Cherry Hill, or any one of the bustling boroughs in between.
