Internal Medicine Residency Program

Welcome to the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School

Internal Medicine Residency Program!

Thank you for visiting our Program’s website! Our mission is to provide patient-centered education, while promoting professionalism, scholarship and research. We take great pride in the accomplishments of our residents and alumni who embody the core values of our program.

By cultivating an environment that affords opportunities for our residents to be leaders in medicine, we actively engage trainees in all aspects of their professional development. Residents focus on the provision of outstanding patient care, the development and application of a robust knowledge base, and involvement in innovative research. All of this occurs in an environment that remains committed to viewing the practice of medicine as a calling to the service of others.

While time in residency is not sufficient to learn all that internal medicine has to teach, our integrated curriculum sets the framework for education during residency and beyond. This website contains detailed information about our program, and we invite you to peruse this resource.
