Rutgers New Jersey Medical School has agreed to sponsor Trinitas Regional Medical Center’s internal medicine and psychiatry residency programs.
As part of the agreement, Rutgers and Trinitas will collaborate on medical education, the delivery of health care and research opportunities. As the sponsoring institution, Rutgers will have responsibility for all aspects of the training of residents and the educational curricula. Trinitas and Rutgers will coordinate with one another to determine the number and qualifications of residents, and the residents will be instructed by Rutgers faculty and Trinitas employed physicians.
There are currently 42 physicians enrolled in the programs at Trinitas.
“Sponsorship of our graduate medical education program by Rutgers is a homerun that brings great benefits to our residents and our patients,” said Gary Horan, Trinitas CEO. “Rutgers is one of the oldest and perhaps best known universities in the state, and it has a successful history of sponsoring residency programs in other hospitals. It stands for strong academic commitment and the staff is heavily involved in scholarly activities including research. In addition, our residents will have full use of their exceptional research and laboratory facilities.”
Trinitas is a Catholic teaching hospital for physicians, and also oversees one of the largest nursing schools in the country, the Trinitas School of Nursing. Trinitas Regional Medical Center is a 546 bed full-service hospital in Elizabeth that offers behavioral health, cancer treatment, renal care, cardiac care, maternal/child services and wound healing, as well as primary care.
