Brings Her Skills as Clinician
and Teacher Home to
n September 2013, Jennifer Endres
Jimenez, MD '07, joined the full-
time faculty in the Department of
Pediatrics at Jersey Shore University
Medical Center, in Neptune Township.
In addition to caring for patients, she
is enjoying teaching medical students
and residents on rounds and in lec-
tures. "With many of our medical
students coming from Robert Wood
Johnson Medical School, it's like
coming home," she says.
Dr. Jimenez's appointment fol-
lowed a pediatric residency at Inova
Children's Hospital, in Falls Church,
Virginia, and a three-year gastroen-
terology (GI) fellowship at the
Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for
Children, in Wilmington, Delaware.
For two consecutive years, the hospi-
tal's residents elected Dr. Jimenez
"Fellow of the Year."
Pediatric GI is an excellent fit for
Dr. Jimenez. "When I did my pediatric
clerkship [at Bristol-Myers Squibb
Children's Hospital at Robert Wood
Johnson University Hospital], I knew

ennifer Endres was a first-year medical student and
Manuel Jimenez was in his second year when they met
as volunteers for HIPHOP (Homeless and Indigent Popula-
tion Health Outreach Project), a service learning program
at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. That year, Manuel
Jimenez, then student director of HIPHOP, cofounded the
Promise Clinic with classmate John Babineau, MD '06.
Manuel and Jennifer worked together as student doctors
in the clinic, a highly successful student-run and -managed
project that continues to provide access to health care for
New Brunswick's uninsured residents.
They married in 2007 and have three sons, including
twins, all less than three years old. And now, after completing
their postgraduate training in various out-of-state facilities,
they have returned to New Jersey to begin an exciting new
chapter as rising professionals and as a family.
