The Resident Experience
The majority of the residency experience occurs in the City of Hoboken at the Neighborhood Health Center and at Hoboken University Medical Center (HUMC). Residents are a part of an unopposed program which offers them a strong experience in all aspects of Family Medicine from “cradle to grave,” and includes inpatient, ambulatory, ob-gyn, surgical and pediatric care.
We emphasize and adhere to the concepts of patient centered medical home and a team-based approach using up-to-date EMR technology and an integrative approach. We take pride in developing long-term patient partnerships.
Due to its strong academic affiliation with New York Medical College, residents are trained by faculty appointed clinicians and have full unrestricted access to the extensive New York Medical College Library and databases, all of which are accessible electronically. There is also a full medical library onsite at HUMC for resident use.
Our residency program offers a diverse clinical and socioeconomic patient population in the quaint, vibrant and culturally robust setting of Hoboken, NJ.
