Message from the Chief Resident

Dear Applicants,

Welcome to the Saint Michael’s Internal medicine residency program. Thank you for your interest in our program. It’s a more than hundred years old training program in New Jersey’s first acute care hospital. It’s a dual accredited (ACGME and AOA) program with 19 categorical residents each year.

The program is deeply committed to resident education. With the hospital’s location in the inner city of Newark, we come across a uniquely sick patient population, which gives our residents extraordinary learning opportunities. Our program directors and teaching faculty members are committed to teaching. Our didactics include morning report, noon conference, journal club, grand rounds, CPCs, M & M, research lectures, quality improvement projects, board review and more. All these didactics are run by residents along with a faculty member.

Our residents have gone on to fellowships, primary care, hospitalist and academic positions and have been very successful.

Resident Life:
As residents of SMMC, we pride ourselves in working well together both inside and outside the hospital. We find the time to enjoy each other’s company in the culturally rich environment in downtown Newark, NJ. We are just 15 minutes away to New York City.

It’s a perfect location for any resident due to excellent schools, diverse community, endless number of extracurricular activities, shopping malls, restaurants, movie theatres, etc.

Thank you again for considering Saint Michael’s Medical Center in your search for an Internal Medicine training program. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any additional questions.
