The Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine (RowanSOM) is dedicated to refining physicians’ knowledge to manage the changing needs of the healthcare system. This lecture series is devised to augment physician expertise via material on current clinical guideline recommendations, as well as up-to-date advances in medical treatments on specific topics.

In response to evaluations from previous activity participants, focused education blocks were developed to cover the following topics: Family Medicine, Integrated Medical/Dental, Geriatrics, Pain Management, Pediatrics, and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM). Lecturing faculty were chosen based on their clinical research, thorough experience, and clinical distinction in their respective fields.

This seminar will assemble a prominent group of physicians to discuss convenient, current recommendations and protocols and advances in treatments in each of the chosen focus areas.

Program Directors: Joshua S. Coren, DO, MBA, FACOFP and Danielle Cooley, DO.
