A Leader in Medical Education

With two medical schools, Rowan University is an important contributor to the future of healthcare in New Jersey and the nation. Rowan co-founded Cooper Medical School at Rowan University with Cooper University Health Care, welcoming the medical school’s inaugural class in summer 2012. On July 1, 2013, Rowan became one of only two universities in the nation to offer both M.D. and D.O. degree-granting programs with the addition of the School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, NJ (formerly the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey). The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences in Stratford, which grants the Ph.D. and offers a number of master’s and dual-degree programs, is also now part of Rowan. Rowan also offers courses for working and aspiring nurses through its Department of Nursing, an academic department in the College of Science and Mathematics that collaborates with Global Learning & Partnerships to deliver nursing programs online and in face-to-face classes and labs.

The Office of Health Professions is responsible for providing students with the appropriate information and resources to become competitive, well-rounded applicants for one of the various health professional programs. The Office of Health Professions conduct individual and group advising, interactive workshops, and other activities to inform students of their professional school options.
