Family Medicine Residency Program

The Virtua Health Family Medicine Residency Program with Rowan-Virtua SOM offers integrated learning and patient care in a variety of settings throughout Southern New Jersey. Residents are exposed to a diverse rotation of specialty areas and have the freedom to attend additional conferences and presentations to suit their medical interests.
