Trinitas Regional Medical Center is now offering an AOA Internal
Medicine Program. Two DO positions will be offered for each lever starting
in July, 2010. Our Program is Dually-accredited by the AOA and ACGME.
Trinitas Regional Medical Center is located in Elizabeth NJ, which is
conveniently located 20 miles from New York City. The main advantage of
training in Elizabeth is our patient population, which is very diverse.
The AOA is accredited by the American Osteopathic Board of Internal Medicine
and the American Board of Internal Medicine. The program is sponsored by the
New York Osteopathic School of Medicine.
Focusing on comprehensive patient care, residents work in diverse settings,
including private physician offices, hospital-based continuity clinics, and
Medical Clinic. Residents, under the mentorship of a primary care
clinician-educator devoted to hands-on teaching, work with patients who
suffer from common and unusual medical conditions.
In a warm and supportive teaching environment, residents assume an
educationally sound caseload with graduated responsibilities. Residents
serve as team leaders on inpatient services, consultants in subspecialty
clinics and have elective time. Training covers flexible sigmoidoscopies,
punch skin biopsies, articulura injections, pre-operative and post-operative
consultation, hospitalist care, gynecology, treatment of anxiety disorders
and depression, smoking cessation, counseling techniques, and stress
management. Ambulatory rotations include obstetrics/gynecology;
ophthalmology; dermatology; ear, nose and throat; neurology; psychiatry;
orthopedics; and surgery.
Throughout the program, residents are trained to become primary care
internists, hospitalists or candidates for a fellowship.
