Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency

Jersey City Medical Center OB/GYN Residency

Jersey City Medical Center – a highly regarded academic teaching hospital - prides itself on its Residency Program in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Keeping up with the latest technologies and procedures, our physicians are committed to training the next generation of physicians.

In this intellectually stimulating environment, residents and faculty work as a team to provide exceptional care to patients.

Our physicians play an integral role in the academic and clinical education of 12 residents in training - three residents per postgraduate year in the obstetrics and gynecology residency program. Residents are supervised 24 hours per day, 365 days per year by an in-house attending physician who is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Enhanced Patient Care Through a Culture of Discovery

Our faculty and attending physician are up-to-date on the latest literature, procedures and recommendations from evidenced-based medicine. Residents enhance patient care by providing readily accessible, timely and appropriate patient-centered care. They are trained in patient safety issues and contribute to patient safety and performance improvement projects.

In addition to learning the medical skills needed to become a physician in this specialized field, residents also develop an equally important skill—how to treat patients as people, offering them and their families the support they need at what could be the most joyful or most difficult time of their lives. After completing the four-year residency, residents are prepared either to enter private practice or to enter a fellowship.

Many residents who graduated from the Jersey City Medical Center Ob/Gyn program remain in the area. Several of the faculty members and many of the private obstetrician gynecologists on staff are graduates of this residency program as well.
