Internal Medicine Residency | Program Details

The Internal Medicine residents rotate through two campuses 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 Mainland Campus is on the Stockton University 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. All PGY 2 residents get additional exposure through the neuro-intensive care unit. PGY 3 residents may elect to spend 2 weeks on a Health Care Administration/Leadership elective.

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.

Other highlights:

  • 1 month off per PGY year  (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
  • Generous meal stipend
