Making Medical History
Rowan co-founded Cooper Medical School of 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 Rowan 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 now also 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 Rowan Global Learning & Partnerships to deliver nursing programs online and in face-to-face classes and labs.
This growth has propelled Rowan to become a stronger educational leader, poised to impact the healthcare landscape of both our region and across the nation.
