Message from Program Director
The Internal Medicine Residency offers a robust curriculum and access to experienced, supportive faculty in convenient locations throughout South Jersey. Each specialty program includes weekly didactics, attending and guest lecturers, clinical experiences and sessions in our procedure labs and simulation center.
Our curriculum focuses on evidence-based medicine with an emphasis on ultrasound training. As a 4 + 1 program, residents spend four weeks of rotations in a hospital setting and one week in an outpatient primary care setting. Second-year residents interested in inpatient medicine have the opportunity to apply to the Hospitalist Medicine track, which involves quality improvement, patient safety, career development, clinical rotations and classroom education. Our overall curriculum consists of resident and attending physician-led lectures, grand rounds, hands-on training and continued participation in various learning opportunities to broaden the resident experience.
We also offer a Primary Care track that gives residents extensive experience in ambulatory medicine. By spending more time in the primary care setting, residents build the specific knowledge and skills that will help them become outstanding generalists. The Primary Care track emphasizes long-term resident ownership of patient panels while exposing residents to relevant medical specialties and providing additional training and education in health care delivery.

Required rotations for the categorical curriculum may include Ambulatory Medicine, Cardiology, Emergency Medicine, Gastroenterology, Geriatrics, Hematology and Oncology, Infectious Disease, Inpatient General Medicine, Intensive Care Unit, Nephrology, Neurology, Night Float, Primary Care Clinic and Pulmonology.

Longitudinal experiences help our residents develop the necessary skills to become well-rounded internists with a deep understanding of common adult health conditions. Our longitudinal experiences include daily didactic sessions with residents and attending-led lectures, simulation lab experiences, morning reports, morbidity and mortality conferences, resident-led literature reviews and discussions, board review program, research and quality improvement opportunities and ultrasound medical training.
