Dear RBHS Colleagues,
Please join us in welcoming resident physicians and fellows from Hahnemann University Hospital of Philadelphia to the Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences community.
Approximately fifteen of the residents and fellows who have been displaced by the closing of Hahnemann will continue their training at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Jersey Medical School, or other RWJBarnabas Health locations beginning this month.
Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences is committed to preparing the next generation of health practitioners. We are pleased to support these future health care professionals as they join the 1,600 total RBHS and RWJBH physician residents and fellows in the completion of the rigorous and transformative interprofessional experience that will crown their medical training.
We wish our new community members and all of our residents and fellows the best as they embark on this stage of their training.
