Hunterdon Family Medicine Residency

Our Mission

The primary mission of the Hunterdon Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program is to educate residents utilizing the values and precepts which are fundamental to the way medicine is practiced by family physicians in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, so that they themselves may graduate as family physicians who can provide this model of exemplary primary care to their patients, their patients' families and the communities which they serve.

Because of the respect that family medicine enjoys in Hunterdon County, residents have a unique opportunity to see how effective a family physician can be. Every facet of Hunterdon's integrated delivery system is utilized to enhance the resident's understanding of the full impact of family practice in this country. Our mission allows us to move toward our ultimate vision in family medicine education. This vision is to create a humanistic and compassionate form of education which models completely the humanism and compassion that we teach in the doctor-patient relationship.


Our Hospital

Hunterdon Medical Center was created in 1953 with the vision of an integrated health care delivery system in mind. This vision encompassed the following:

  • primary care would be delivered by family physicians in the community.
  • consultative and specialty care would be hospital-based with patients returned to their personal physicians.
  • The hospital would be a training center for family physicians.

This system has worked remarkably well with Hunterdon Medical Center currently enjoying one of the best quality care outcomes in the country, as well as having one of the lowest per capita costs for hospitalization in the nation. Family medicine is REAL in Hunterdon County.

The centerpiece of the Hunterdon Healthcare System is Hunterdon Medical Center. The Medical Center has 178 beds, including advanced medical and surgical units, a 12 bed Intensive Care/Coronary Care Unit, a 20-bed Same Day Surgery Center, a 20-bed Maternity and Newborn Care Center which was one of the first single-room maternity centers in New Jersey, a 10-bed Pediatric unit and a 14-bed Behavioral Health wing.


University Affiliation

Hunterdon Medical Center has enjoyed a major teaching affiliation with Rutgers University - Robert Wood Johnson Medical School since 1972 and has been involved with the teaching of medical students in physical diagnosis, office preceptorships, third-year clinical rotations and fourth-year electives and sub-internships.

This affiliation allows extended learning beyond Hunterdon, including a variety of exceptional programs such as Advanced Life Saving in Obstetrics, conferences on professionalism, career development, medical-legal issues, contracting and negotiations, research and other scholarly activities.

Hunterdon Medical Center additionally has teaching affiliations and regularly welcomes medical students from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine, Rutgers University - New Jersey Medical School, and Temple University School of Medicine.
