Since our founding in 1808, education has been a key part of our mission. We were the founder of one of the first pediatric residencies in the country and were the site of New Jersey's First Academic Medical University. Since then, our medical professionals have made historical contributions to the world of healthcare, including the work of Dr. Edmund Burke (surgery), Dr. Samuel Cosgrove (obstetrics), Dr. Anthony Damato (heart electrophysiology), Dr. Robert Lahita (rheumatology), and Dr. Carroll Leevy (liver disease).
Jersey City Medical Center is a teaching affiliate and a member of Americas Essential Hospitals.
Internal Medicine Residency
Our setting offers an ideal venue for Internal Medicine training of a multiethnic Resident staff with emphasis on hands-on experience and proximate patient care. Residents mature into competent Board Certified Internists under the guidance of well-qualified faculty.
Dental Medicine Residency
The overall goal of the Program is to provide residents with advanced training beyond predoctoral education to enhance individual skills and confidence in practicing general dentistry with a multi-disciplinary approach.
Clinical Rotations, Internships, and Externships (non-medicine)
Jersey City Medical Center takes pride in helping meet the clinical education needs of students in a variety of fields, including nursing and allied health. Non-clinical and volunteer placements are available for those preparing to apply for educational programs in the future.
