Previously an academic unit of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School merged with Rutgers, on July 1, 2013.

Recognizing the importance of cultural, socioeconomic and case-mix diversity, residents in training have the opportunity to learn and care for a wide variety of populations that characterize Central New Jersey.  A 600-bed tertiary level university hospital and a 300-bed true community hospital, along with exposure to an NCI designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, a Federally Qualified Health Care Center and a wide-array of integrated research opportunities at Rutgers, the training ground for our residents remains robust.

Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) and the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro (UMCPP) form the core teaching hospitals for our residency training program in internal medicine.
