The Basics

What was the zip code of your residence in high school?

07726

Overall, how satisfied are you with this program?

8 out of 10

What do you like most?

"Patient population of Newark. Believe the hype - people really are incredibly sick. You will see diseases even residents trained at other programs have never seen. Patients tend to have little to no primary care, so diseases are typically end-stage and impressive. State-school in an urban, low income area means most people don't have big egos (not always true). There are opportunities to do rotations at hackensack, st barnabas, morristown hospitals to get a better grasp of upper-middle class (insured) patient care." Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"Going to this school will not preclude you matching to a great residency. Keep in mind many aspects of medical school education are dependent on which residents are rotating at a certain time, which changes from year to year and may render older advice obsolete. NJMS switched to a "systems-based" 1st and 2nd year curriculum a few years ago." Report Response
