The St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center
New York Medical College Anesthesia Residency
 
In July 2016 our program will be increasing to 24 residents
-we have had continued success in prestigious fellowship placements (see "Graduates"). 
-with our recent hiring of 2 fellowship-trained regional anesthesia specialists (including our former chief resident,Georgina Sesana who  trained at  the Cleveland  Clinics) our Acute Pain Management/Regional Anesthesia service has seen tremendous growth as we train  the  next generation of regional anesthesiologists
-as the New Jersey campus of New York Medical College, our residents are afforded many teaching opportunities and we recently added "Teaching residents to teach" lectures in conjunction with NYMC.
the area around the hospital has undergone further development. New York Medical College/Touro is nearing completion of a new medical student and resident housing. A new Walgreen's has opened up across the street and a Club Metro Fitness Center  just opened next to Subway and the Mocha Town Grill offering resident discounts.

This past year has been an exciting one for our department and for the hospital and we look forward to more growth and innovation in the future!
-In 2015 we opened our beautiful 5 room ambulatory surgery center and endoscopy suite. We will soon be opening a hybrid cardiac  cath/OR to handle our transcatheter aortic valve replacements (TAVR) and other procedures.
-our research and scholarly activity was presented at the ASA, NYSSA/PGA, Society of Obstetric Anesthesia, Soc.of Pediatric  Anesthesia,  NYSORA and  NJSSA (where our resident was awarded for best presentation).
two of our residents received recognition from the ABA for scoring in the top 10% of the nation on the ABA Basic exam. For the second  straight year all our residents passed the Basic exam. 
we have begun innovative training projects including our "Leadership Symposium". This dinner lecture  series teaches residents to be future leaders, with lectures on professionalism, practice management, the perioperative surgical home  and the  future of health care in America.
