Internal Medicine Residency | Program Details

The Internal Medicine residents rotate through two divisions of AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus and Mainland Campus, and serve both the surrounding communities and more than 37 million visitors to the region each year.  The City Campus is located in Atlantic City one block from the beach.  The Mainland Campus is in the Pine Barrens on the Stockton State College Campus 11 miles from the City Campus.

The full-time and volunteer teaching faculty is comprised of both university and community hospital trained internists and subspecialists who offer a practical approach to patient care.  The Internal Medicine residents care for patients in both the inpatient and outpatient settings, receiving extensive experience in the ambulatory care clinic and in community-based physician offices.  The critical care units offer the opportunity to work with Board-certified intensivists and support staff in a closed ICU model.

In addition to a comprehensive, multi-specialty inpatient and ambulatory care experience, AtlantiCare is home to the Heart Institute, the Neurosciences Institute and the Cancer Care Institute, as well as a Level 2 Trauma Center, all of which provide a unique educational opportunity for the residents.

Our biggest innovation has been the introduction of a block schedule with rotations through Ambulatory Care every six weeks.  This experience allows for greater continuity of care with dedicated full-time and part-time attendings who get to know you and your patients very well.  In addition, the Ambulatory Care blocks also allow for offsite rotations in Ophthalmology, ENT, GI, Pain Management, Dermatology, Allergy/Immunology, Palliative Care, Wound Care, Podiatry as well as dedicated time for study or research.    

Most blocks are two-week rotations allowing for extensive exposure during each rotation with minimal call responsibilities.  Most electives are call-free.  

Other innovations include a Physician Leadership rotation for all senior residents, and dedicated rotations in Cardiology, Nephrology, Neurology, Rheumatology and Endocrinology.

Other highlights:

  • 4 weeks time off per PGY (including vacation, sick and conference time)
  • Conference stipend for PGY-2 and PGY-3 residents
  • Rolling average > 90% pass rate on the ABIM Certifying Examination over the past three years
  • Simulation lab
  • Weekly Meal Allowance
