Our residents have the opportunity to work in a diverse variety of settings in both inpatient and outpatient service.
Family Health and Wellness Center – Cheverly
This new outpatient clinic which adjoins the Hospital provides the opportunity for Residents to provide care to a variety of patient groups and over the entire course of their training. We encourage the development of a strong Patient-Doctor bond and appreciate the benefit of maintaining that relationship over time. Patients present medical needs ranging from the simple to the very complex. Our population comes from a diverse community which provides the opportunity for training in many forms of doctor-patient communication, encourages respect and tolerance for differences and aids in developing cultural competence. The Attendings are Board Certified Family Medicine physicians who have experience in similar working environments within a clinic or private practice model.

Residents maintain patient care of Nursing Home residents throughout their three year training with expanded responsibilities and increased patient load over time.
The Residency program maintains an expanding number of relationships with community providers in a variety of medical specialties, including outpatient pediatrics, dermatology, gastroenterology and sports medicine. Residents are encouraged to pursue areas of interest and the Program makes good efforts to find rotation placements if they are not currently available. These rotations provide exposure not only to the particular patient population of interest but expose the resident to a variety of Practice models.
