Medical Education Department
The Medical Education department is responsible for administrative functions for our residents, medical students, physician assistants, fellows, and observers. Virtua is committed to providing and maintaining a warm, welcoming, healing environment while promoting personalized service and enhanced healing.
Our education programs are here to help develop and train leaders in medicine. The goal is to produce skilled practitioners who can compete in the demanding health care field. Residents and fellows will receive a well-balanced knowledge base upon which to build. Virtua's residency programs (Obstetrics and Gynecology, Family Medicine, General Surgery, Internal Medicine, Pharmacy, and Podiatry) are dedicated to providing rewarding experiences.
Our residency program provides continual and comprehensive care to patients and families through Virtua's services that are devoted to women's health, pediatrics, cancer, cardiology, and orthopedics.
Virtua's Surgical Residency Program trains surgeons in the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of patients who suffer from illness across the broad spectrum of surgery.
Virtua's Internal Medicine Residency program trains internists in the promotion of health, prevention of disease, and the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of a broad range of illnesses.
Our Ob/GYN residency program offers extensive experience in all aspects of hospital care, including obstetrics, gynecology, maternal-fetal medicine, female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, and emergency medicine.
Upon completion of the Virtua Pharmacy Residency Program graduates will be qualified for positions including PGY-2 resident, clinical pharmacist, and inpatient pharmacist.
Our goal is to produce skilled practitioners of podiatric medicine and surgery who can compete in today's marketplace.
