The residency manages a 24/7 Family Medicine Service and does most of its inpatient rotations at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH). It is the hub of a clinically-integrated medical campus that includes the NCI-designated Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the Child Health Institute of New Jersey and The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital. Over 1,300 physicians in every specialty are affiliated with the hospital, and over 200,000 patients are treated annually at RWJUH.
Residents learn ambulatory care working side-by-side with attending physicians at Family Medicine at Monument Square (FMMS), a NCQA certified Patient-Centered Medical Home. It is conveniently located in downtown New Brunswick. FMMS hosts over 25,000 patient visits per year in 20 examination rooms.
