Education

Residency education and training at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center embodies an experience of true responsibility in comprehensive patient care.

Our internal medicine residency program incorporates traditional medicine with new practice trends. The ACGME and AOA-accredited training is centered around working with patients and exposing our residents to diverse medical cases, pathologies and treatments.

We stress that the treatment of disease includes not only dealing with pathology but also supporting the patient’s well-being as a whole. This perspective enables us to formulate a rational, scientific and personal approach to the care of each patient

AtlantiCare residents are prepared for the changing environment of healthcare and the challenges of providing the highest quality of care in a cost-effective manner. Residents rotate through our two acute-care hospitals, our various community practices and our clinic for underserved communities. They also get to work with seasoned physicians and experience a variety of work environments in different types of facilities.

Residents are required to complete a clinical research project during their residency. In addition, they are encouraged to write clinical abstracts and submit them to regional and national meetings. Several of our residents have written abstracts or clinical vignettes that have won competitions.

As a resident here, you’ll take an active role in the evaluation and development of your training program, offering feedback and suggestions via program evaluations and surveys. Your contributions help us to continually build and improve upon our training through a culture of inclusion. The program’s strength is derived from the camaraderie that exists amongst residents and faculty, proving that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

“Residents here are active participants in the evaluation and development of their training.”
