The Pathology Residency training program is located primarily at the Rutgers - Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS) in New Brunswick, New Jersey. This site includes Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, the Bristol Meyers Squibb Children’s Hospital (BMSCH), and The Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ), which serve the greater central New Jersey region.

Approximately one month of each year is spent at our affiliate, Cooper Hospital in Camden.
