From Our Residents
"Our residency is among the best whether allopathic or osteopathic. We receive a great education. Our Clinical and operating skills, by the time we graduate, are excellent." Our attendings are great teachers as well as great mentors."
Alex Morales, DO
"I have seen how other surgical programs train their residents and have worked with a variety of graduates and residents in the largest medical center in the world. I would put UMDNJ-SOM up against any of these. The training is well-rounded, the academics are solid and the surgical experience is outstanding. I consider it an honor to have been trained by this program."
