The goal of CarePoint Health New York Medical College Family Medicine Residency at CarePoint Health Hoboken University Medical Center is to train the best family physicians. Our residents have a multitude of educational opportunities through which they are able to grasp the full scope of family medicine and be prepared for any type of clinical practice.
Along with our strong academic partnership with New York Medical College, we have the best combination of a diverse patient population. Our program is unopposed which means our residents do not practice with residents from other medical specialties. The New York Medical College Family Residency at CarePoint Health Hoboken University Medical Center’s residents find this to be an advantage, because they are able to work directly with attending physicians in a noncompetitive educational environment.
Our curriculum meets all residency review requirements for family medicine. It is designed to provide residents with a comprehensive background in the broad aspects of this specialty. This includes a strong ambulatory care experience focusing on a team-based approach and the patient centered medical home (PCMH) philosophy, along with exposure to inpatient, pediatric and geriatric care. We believe in the family physician’s role to care for patients throughout their life cycle and in various environments.
Most graduates enter clinical practice immediately after graduation. Residents have also been quite successful in obtaining fellowships in areas such as geriatrics and sports medicine. Some have obtained academic positions. Graduates have also opened their own solo practices, while others have worked for community health centers or group practices
