Internal Medicine Residency at HackensackUMC Mountainside

Building a future with unlimited possibilities

The mission of HackensackUMC Mountainside’s internal medicine program is to train and equip competent general internists and candidates for sub-specialty training. We strive to develop well-rounded practitioners who deliver compassionate, safe, cost-effective, evidence-based care to a multicultural population.

Become a great primary care internist

The three-year program includes a team approach to medical education and patient care and a basis to learn the skills required by the American Board of Internal Medicine. We build superb primary care internists.

Our Internal Medicine Residency Program is fully accredited by the Residency Review Committee for Internal Medicine (RRC-IM) of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Our graduates consistently pass the ABIM certifying examination on the first attempt with scores in the top decile. Currently there are eight first-year positions open, eight second year and seven third year, for a total of 23 residents.

Since 1994, about 20 percent of our graduates have entered sub-specialty fellowship training programs including Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Endocrinology, Hematology/Oncology and Infectious Diseases at various premier programs such as the National Institutes of Health, the Mayo Clinic, Baylor University, University of Minnesota, Boston University, UMDNJ-RWJ, and the University of Nebraska.  

With full-time faculty devoted entirely to the education of residents and students, we offer the opportunity to:
  1. Learn in a state-of-the-art audio-visual facility: the Alan E. Matook M.D., M.Sc. Residents’ Learning Center.
  2. Provide the best evidence-based patient care. This encompasses gender, age and occupation as well as ethnic, economic, home and environmental factors.
  3. Develop competence in clinical diagnosis and cost effective treatment while promoting optimal fitness and disease prevention.
  4. Acquire a broad background and experience in other medical disciplines including office gynecology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, ENT, rehabilitation medicine and urology.
