St Joesph's Regional Medical Center

Established originally in 2004, our residency program has quickly grown to support the needs of the Emergency Department at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center in Paterson, NJ.  With over 160,000 annual ED visits, St. Joseph’s has not only become the busiest ED in the state of New Jersey, but also one of the largest in the country.  As a designated stroke center, 24-hour interventional cardiac catheterization center and a level II trauma center, our 90 bed ED is equipped with all the necessary tools and resources for both patient care and resident education.

We are accredited by the ACGME as a three year emergency medicine residency and are affiliated with New York Medical College.
