An Update on Recent Graduates

The career paths of our recent graduates vividly illustrate that our residents are well-prepared for Hospital Medicine, Primary Care or subspecialty training. Many residents have remained with Mountainside Medical Center as hospitalists, primary care providers and specialists. Due to the completion of the brand new medical office building across the street from the hospital, there are plenty of opportunities for many graduates to grow their practices serving the community they served as residents.
