About Our Medical Education Programs
The Medical Education programs include:
- Undergraduate Medical Education
- Graduate Medical Education
- Continuing Medical Education
- Allied Health Professions Education
Graduate Medical Education programs are sponsored by the four teaching
institutions affiliated with the System:
The System hosts medical students from the
University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey/New Jersey Medical School in Newark, NJ, and
Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA, for junior year clerkship and senior year electives.
The System is a major clinical campus for
New York College of Osteopathic Medicine in Old Westbury, New York, and is affiliated with the
St. George's University School of Medicine, in Grenada, for junior and senior clerkships.
Residencies and fellowhips in a wide variety of specialties and subspecialties
are offered. Clinical research and public health issues are an integral
part of our education mission.
Continuing Medical Education (CME) activities are conducted throughout
the System, with our hospitals accredited by the Medical Society of New
Jersey to offer CME to the physicians in the community.
A number of physician-assistant, technician and other allied health professions
students obtain clinical experience within the System.
Highest quality medical education is felt to result in highest quality
patient care and ultimately delivers to our patients the most current,
cost-effective, and integrated medical care possible.
