The size of our residency program, our suburban location, the adjacent Kindercare Child Care Center (with resident discounts), our new progressive maternity and family leave policies, and the sensitivity of our Medical Center to family-related issues make Saint Barnabas Medical Center attractive to families of residents. We value the importance of a rich family life while residents sustain a scholarly educational experience.
