A Leader in Medical Education

Medical education has long played a key role at Monmouth. In 1945, Monmouth established its first residency program – in orthopaedics – to meet the needs of physicians returning from World War II trained in treating battlefield trauma.

Half of our residents enter practice after graduation, while the others enter some of the most competitive fellowships in the United States. Today Monmouth has 110 residents in eight accredited residency programs.

Medical/Dental Staff

Monmouth’s respected reputation as an academic community hospital attracts the best physicians and dentists to its professional staff.

With nearly 700 physicians representing more than 60 recognized subspecialties, the hospital sets high standards for admission. Physicians are board certified or board eligible in their specialties, and those who actively participate in Monmouth’s educational programs hold medical school faculty appointments. To keep the staff abreast of the latest medical developments, Monmouth provides an education program offering 350 CME credit hours yearly.

Each residency program is headed by a director, responsible for overseeing the entire program and working closely with residents to ensure they receive the appropriate training to successfully complete their residency.

Monmouth’s 600 member nursing staff provides expert and competent nursing services at bedside, working as part of the health care team. Thirty percent of all nurses are nationally certified in their specialties, and registered nurses comprise more than half of the staff.

The Unterberg Center of Nursing Excellence serves as an educational resource for the nursing staff, providing continuing educational courses and in-service training.
