Think you know New Jersey? Think again: From the bustling excitement of northern New Jersey to the boardwalks of the Jersey Shore and the quiet, lovely townships of southern New Jersey, this dynamic state offers rewarding lifestyles every bit as diverse as the people who call it home.

what NJ has to offer – beaches, cultureThe northern half of the state provides physicians and their families with a compelling blend of suburban and urban living, coupling access to New York City with the convenience of sprawling shopping malls, the charm of quaint downtown districts, and the vibrant artistic and culinary scenes of a resurgent Newark. The region also offers a wide range of excellent school systems; four distinctive, beautiful seasons; and a broad spectrum of housing options ranging from apartments and condominiums to stylish townhouses and picture-perfect single-family homes.

Heading south, the scenery changes as the dynamic energy of people on the move gives way to vast stretches of forest and wetlands, farms and the rolling surf of the Atlantic. Physicians who choose to practice and live in southern New Jersey enjoy easy access to the famed Jersey Shore – a beloved vacation destination for millions of Americans every year – as well as the myriad pleasures of a slower, quieter pace of living, all less than two hours from Philadelphia. From the unspoiled natural preserves of the Gateway National Recreation Area at Sandy Hook to the electric sights, sounds and tastes of towns along the shore, and beyond to the timeless charm of small-town main streets and endless acres of parkland and marinas, southern New Jersey has something for everyone.
