Overview - Family Medicine Residency Program

Thank you for your interest in our program! The Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School 's Family Medicine Residency Program at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital is New Jersey 's only urban, University hospital-based Family Medicine program.  Our program started in 1980 and we have graduated over 240 residents who practice in New Jersey and nationwide. Our goal is to guide your development into becoming the Family Physician you dream of – allowing you a wide variety of areas of interest to pursue and develop expertise.

Our program is a 5-5-5 academic focused, fellowship linked, community-oriented Family Medicine Residency.  We train future leaders in clinical care, community outreach, education and primary care practice-based research. 

We are located in New Brunswick, NJ, the home of Rutgers University and a vibrant university town with diverse cuisine, cultural and recreational opportunities.   Located in central New Jersey with excellent public and personal transportation connectivity, the “Hub City” is an easy 30-60 minute ride to major airports as well as New York City, Philadelphia, the Jersey Shore and multiple recreation areas.  There are many prospects for work life balance and also for significant other employment or education in the Central NJ area.

We look forward to meeting you and getting the opportunity to introduce you to our program. We wish you the best on your family medicine educational journey.
