Internal Medicine Residency

at Community Medical Center

Dr. Vinod Nookala, MD, FACPA Message from the Program Director:

Welcome to the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Community Medical Center. We are committed to providing you the best possible clinical training, a comprehensive educational program, and excellent research opportunities.

At the Rutgers Health/Community Medical Center Internal Medicine Residency Program, you will receive superior clinical training that prepares you for the next phase of your career. The patient population at Community Medical Center is a great blend of routine cases with an exciting array of rare cases typically seen at a university hospital. The faculty consists of some of the finest clinicians in New Jersey, who are dedicated to educating learners with a special emphasis on the practice of evidence-based medicine, diagnostic reasoning, and patient-centered approach. A well-balanced training through didactics and personalized mentoring will give residents a strong platform for the practice of medicine. Our unique training program will ensure the overall development of our future residents.

We strive to work toward a supportive and stimulating learning environment that values diversity and inclusiveness and teaches physicians to work in interprofessional teams. We will also obtain direct feedback on a regular basis as the art of medicine is a moving target where every aspect of patient care is continuously evolving.

On this rewarding educational journey, residents will develop long-lasting relationships, and hopefully, become a part of this wonderful community. We are firmly committed to meeting residents’ professional and personal goals, and look forward to welcoming learners to CMC in future. Thank you for your interest in Community Medical Center.
