Monmouth Medical Center is located in the heart of Long Branch, just a few blocks from the Atlantic Ocean. Long Branch is a popular spot for surf, sun, and shore fun. The town, with its cutting-edge residential beachside condos, premier shops, and restaurants at Pier Village, offers a broad range of activities. During the summer, there are free weekly outdoor concerts and movies under the stars and year-round historic sites, parks, shops, and restaurants that offer something for every taste.

The renovated 9.5-mile long Boardwalk overlooking the ocean is one of the favorite places for our residents and employees. Residents frequently engage in group activities in their free time, fostering strong interpersonal ties in addition to the professional relations developed at the hospital.

Residents participate in sporting competitions in volleyball, soccer, basketball, and cricket and socialize in bowling, snow sports, trail hiking, and adventurous sports like bungee jumping and skydiving.

The Department of Medicine annually holds a Holiday Party in December and Graduation Party in June to celebrate the PGY-3s class. The family atmosphere of the MMC IM Residency is strengthened by frequent get-togethers organized by residents for occasions such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, New Year, and other festivities. Residents in other departments, hospital employees, and attendings are often a part of these events.

Long Branch and the adjacent townships of Ocean, Asbury Park, Eatontown, and West Long Branch offer affordable and quality housing, excellent public and private schools, and amenities within a short distance. New Jersey possesses many unique qualities. As the most ethnically diverse state, New Jersey has more scientists and engineers per mile than anywhere else. We also have the country's third highest per capita income, the top school system, and are home to many prestigious universities. These establish New Jersey as one of the most desirable locations to live and work.
