The Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine is dedicated to refining physicians’ knowledge to manage the changing needs of the healthcare system. This education-based 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: Cardiology, Primary Care, Integrated Medical /Dental, Palliative Care, Geriatrics and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. Lecturing faculty were chosen based on their clinical research, thorough experience, and clinical distinction in their respective fields. This series will assemble a prominent group of physicians to discover convenient, current recommendations and protocols and advances in treatments in each of the chosen focus areas.
