Family Medicine Residency at Hoboken University Medical Center

Message From Our Program Director

Welcome to the New York Medical College Family Medicine Residency at Carepoint Health – Hoboken University Medical Center. You are choosing the amazing field of Family Medicine where we are the “quarterback” and coaches for our patients’ care. You will have the opportunity to make a tremendous difference in the lives of the people you will meet both colleagues and patients. Our philosophy is that we learn together and there is much to learn in Family Medicine. You will be a valued member of the team and your voice is important.

Every year we receive over a thousand applications to our residency. We select eight residents for the class. Since we are building a team, we look for residents who can work well together. We cherish diversity – cultural, life experiences, beliefs – so that we can create the richest learning environment.

Our goal is to train the best family physicians. We look for individuals who are highly motivated, enthusiastic about learning and caring for patients, rigorously honest, self-reflective and willing to work hard. In return you are part of a caring, supportive family of educators who are committed to your wellbeing as a learner and a person. Everyone has their own path and we work diligently to help you become the family physician you aspire to be – to make that dream come true.

Thank you for your interest in our program.

Abbie Jacobs, MD
