Graduate Medical Education

Welcome to the Office of Graduate Medical Education (GME), the central administrative office for residency and fellowship programs at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

Graduate Medical Education plays a vital role in our mission of transforming health care for New Jersey and the nation through innovation and excellence in education, discovery, patient and family-centered care and addressing the health of our diverse community.

With over 450 residents and fellows in more than 40 programs, RWJMS provides a broad range of outstanding training programs from primary care residencies to sub-specialty fellowships. Upon completion of training, our graduates are well prepared to provide the highest level of patient care and to be leaders in academic medicine.

The GME office is a source for administrative functions as pertaining to residents and fellows, including the maintenance of permanent records, credentialing, processing payroll and loan deferments. This office also ensures that accreditation requirements, Rutgers policies, resident contracts, Committee for Interns and Residents (CIR) and New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners requirements are adhered to by all programs.
