Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU) is proud to have diversity, collaboration, and mutual respect as a core values. We embrace the philosophy that excellence in medical education, research, and clinical practice is best achieved through promoting diversity in its broadest definition and maintaining an academic and work environment free of discrimination. We have pledged to sustain a learning community where diversity is celebrated, and to foster access to medical education to learners from all segments of society. We consider inclusivity to be a responsibility of everyone in our learning environment.
One of CMSRU's goals is to increase the number of students and faculty members from those groups underrepresented in medicine, as well as women faculty in positions of leadership and in the higher academic ranks, and to create an academic environment that is welcoming and respectful of diversity of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, cultural background, and socioeconomic group.
We believe that our mission and values will help shape physicians who provide compassionate and culturally sensitive care to all they serve. Thank you for choosing to browse our web site. We hope you that find that our mission resonates with your own.
