Patient Care

As one of the nation’s leading comprehensive medical schools, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in health care delivery. It is grounded in a commitment to an exceptional, patient-centered continuum of care and collaboration with Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital—the medical school’s principal affiliate—to comprise New Jersey’s premier academic medical center.

Our comprehensive clinical care is provided through the medical school’s Robert Wood Johnson Medical Group. With more than 500 physicians representing over 200 specialty and subspecialty programs, Robert Wood Johnson Medical Group is among the largest multispecialty physician practices in the state. It offers a full range of primary care services to patients through family medicine, general internal medicine, and pediatrics, and 14 clinical departments that provide a broad spectrum of advanced specialty care.

For our patients, our ties to academic medicine mean access to some of the brightest minds in medicine, thought leaders, and health care innovators—clinicians who are constantly updating their own education and skill levels. Robert Wood Johnson Medical Group physicians are known for creating new therapies and developing landmark treatments that shape the future of medicine, including pioneering breakthrough methods to target cancer.

At the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the collaboration of researchers and physicians is transforming discoveries into clinical practice and providing education and outreach regarding cancer prevention, detection, and treatment. One of only 41 National Cancer Institute–designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and the only one in New Jersey, the Cancer Institute of New Jersey delivers advanced, comprehensive cancer care for adults and children and conducts cutting-edge research. The Cancer Institute of New Jersey offers its patients access to the latest cancer research studies and experimental therapies in a caring environment that has been the institute’s hallmark from the beginning.

Robert Wood Johnson Medical School physicians also provide care at the Eric B. Chandler Health Center, which plays a key role in meeting the health care needs of the greater New Brunswick, N.J., community by offering medical services to all who are in need, regardless of a person’s or family’s ability to pay. A federally qualified community health center, Chandler is operated jointly by Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and the Eric B. Chandler Community Advisory Board, Inc. Its goal is to eliminate barriers to obtaining quality, family-oriented primary and dental health care for its diverse, multicultural population by providing comprehensive acute and chronic care to patients of all ages. A broad spectrum of social services also is available, as well as community-based health and wellness programs.

In addition, Robert Wood Johnson Medical Group physicians provide clinical care at numerous hospitals and ambulatory care sites throughout the state.
