Residency Highlights


Resident as Teacher

Acknowledging the Latin etymology of "doctor", the program expects residents to develop effective teaching skills. At our annual resident retreats, didactic sessions aimed at reviewing teaching techniques and methods for effective delivery of feedback to all learner groups are discussed. On the floors, resident led teaching rounds that precedeqasim daily attending rounds, provide opportunities to demonstrate and review physical exam findings and explore clinical reasoning strategies.  During clinic week, residents lead various aspects of the ambulatory curriculum, mentor junior housestaff to optimize EBM skills, and lend guidance on QI projects.  The Arnold P. Gold foundation and the program honor the efforts of our best resident teachers on an annual basis.

Medical students are a constant presence on the wards and in the subspecialty clinics at RWJUH and UMCPP. Second year students learn physical diagnosis skills, third year students complete clinical clerkships, and fourth year students serve as sub-interns. In addition to learning the science of medicine, professional values, attitudes and behaviors are influenced and nurtured by our resident role models.
