What do dinner and a play in NYC, sitting on a beach, and skiing all have in common? They are all just a short trip from St. Joseph’s University Medical Center.
In addition to our on-site housing, residents frequently reside in trendy, upscale nearby communities including Hoboken, Jersey City, Montclair, as well as Manhattan. The Garden State has a variety of terrific outdoor activities, museums, historical sights, college and professional sports. New York City is just a short car, train or bus ride away. If you can imagine your post call days hiking the Hudson Highlands, rafting on the Delaware River, hitting the slopes at Mountain Creek or laying on a beach at the beautiful Jersey Shore, then St. Joseph’s might be the place for you!
Since residency is such a busy time, periodically we make sure to take a break in the action. We have several annual events and the occasional spontaneous night out at a local eatery. Our new resident welcome BBQ and pool party is a great time not only to meet your colleagues, but also to introduce us to your families and start new friendships. You don’t have to be Indian to celebrate Diwali with us, but be prepared for lots of great Indian cuisine! Our departmental Holiday party is renowned through the hospital (and unfortunately, Youtube) for featuring our famous (or infamous) comical resident and attending video presentations. Each spring pros and hackers alike swing away at the annual departmental golf outing. And finally, our graduates spend one last night of fun and reminiscence at our graduation dinner.
