The Office of Student Affairs is dedicated to providing support, advocacy and guidance for the medical students at Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine. We work to promote and encourage in each of our students the essential values of collegiality, compassion, diversity, excellence, innovation and integrity.

We help students navigate and understand the academic rules and regulations and compliance requirements, enabling them to have a successful experience at RowanSOM. It is each student’s responsibility to become familiar with and abide by the RowanSOM Student Honor Code of Professional Conduct and all Rowan University policies and practices, regulations, degree requirements and other rules. You can find important information regarding student policies and information in the Education Handbook.

The RowanSOM Office of Student Affairs promotes student involvement in professional organizations, community service projects, and extracurricular educational activities. The RowanSOM Office of Student Affairs also provides administrative support and leadership in the following specific areas:


  • We plan and support all RowanSOM sponsored student programs including the White Coat Ceremony, Orientation Week and RowanSOM Convocation, just to name a few.
  • We produce the alumni section of the student events calendar that lists all school/ community/ alumni events and programs.

Student Organizations

Student-Mentors Program

In 2008, the new Student-Mentor Program was launched at the Atlantic Regional Osteopathic Convention. The new and improved program, entitled RowanSOM D.O.C.S. – “D.O.s Counseling Students” - pairs students interested in finding a mentor with physicians who are willing to mentor and who share their professional interests. The “matching” is a key component of the new program- no longer will the matches be random, but rather based on student-selected preferences, including medical specialty, location, experience and others. The goal of the RowanSOM D.O.C.S. program is to provide our students with a resource for guidance and career counseling.

To sign-up for the RowanSOM D.O.C.S. Program, simply print the application using one of the links below. Fax your completed application to the RowanSOM Office of Alumni and Student Affairs at 856-566-6714.


Publish all student-related publications including:

Student Health

  • We provide administrative support for the student health program and communicate information about student health requirements and the school's health insurance program.
  • We provide counseling services for RowanSOM students and members of their household through the Student Wellness Program (SWP) offered by Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care.
  • We provide information about potential exposure to blood borne pathogens, including management of occupational/ educational exposures to HIV, HBV and HCV.

Other Student-Related Oversight:

  • We handle all requests related to changes in student enrollment, including leaves and withdrawals.
  • We provide administrative leadership for the Student Affairs Committee.
  • We manage the School Spirit Store, located in the atrium of the Academic Center.

Enhancing student life and professional development is our goal and we strive to do that each and every day. We hope that you find this information helpful and I encourage you to contact us if you need more information or have any questions.
