Message from the Program DirectorLalitha Hansch, MD, FAAFP, DABMA Program Director

The RWJ Somerset Family Medicine Residency Program is distinguished by its commitment to graduate medical education and its excellence in family medicine. As the only residency program based at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset, our program has provided unparalleled opportunities for one-on-one learning experiences since the residency was established in 1975. For 40 years, we have been training residents for the practice of full spectrum family medicine. Our graduates tell us they feel very well prepared for their careers. They are practicing all over the United States and in every kind of role that you can imagine.

At a time when many graduate and training programs are narrowing their focus, we have been able to maintain taking care of our patients wherever they need care. You will find yourself side by side with faculty taking care of your patients in the office, in the hospital, and in the community.

If you are interested in family medicine, you are already aware of how important relationships are in day to day practice. We look forward to helping you develop those meaningful relationships with your patients and with your colleagues.

Training at RWJUH Somerset will allow you to stay in touch with the ideals that drew you to medicine in the first place. Whether you’re interested in maternity care, hospital medicine, integrative medicine, or procedures, we invite you to take a look at our curriculum and apply to RWJUH Somerset Family Medicine Residency Program.
