UPDATES! Ocean Medical Center Graduate Medical Education
We have been getting some incredible updates from the Ocean Medical Center Graduate Medical Education program. Check out the latest…
The inaugural class of residents experiencing their first year of their program (PGY1), is comprised of eight residents in family medicine and six residents in psychiatry. Family medicine residents are at the midpoint of their block rotations in emergency medicine, geriatrics, pediatrics, surgical services, orthopedics, sports medicine, gynecology, maternal care, dermatology, behavioral health, and diagnostic/nuclear imaging. Psychiatry residents are receiving exposure to pharmacological regimens, psychotherapy on an individual and group basis, consultation in medical and surgical settings, collaborate work with interdisciplinary teams and non-medical therapists, and recognition of violence and abuse instances.
Looking ahead, the GME program is completing its 2018-2019 interview season. Match Day is March 15th, 2019, after which Ocean will have determined its next class of residents, which starting in 2019 will include an internal medicine residency, in addition to family medicine and psychiatry. The current residents provided tours to PGY1 applicants this year, giving them a firsthand perspective on the resident experience. All programs are seeing a good mix of applicants, some NJ/NY based applicants as well as applicants from further afield. Ocean is also expanding its academic opportunities by adding a child and adolescent psychiatry programs. A summary of applicants for the 2019-2020 program year is as follows:
1,542 applicants and 111 interviewed for 8 spots
928 applicants and 176 interviewed for 8 spots
914 applicants and 122 interviewed for 10 spots (Ocean Medical Center and Jersey Shore University Medical Center)
