Thomas A. Cavalieri, DOWelcome to the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine (RowanSOM).  For over 40 years, RowanSOM has trained skillful, compassionate, culturally competent, and diverse physicians who will become leaders in their communities.   We remain dedicated to our commitment of excellence in medical education, research and patient care. 

Our website is designed to be a dynamic, user-friendly resource that can answer your questions about our efforts in education, research, clinical care and community service.

Our students are the heart of our school. With a long-standing tradition of diversity and devotion to community service, our students constantly impress me with their determination to become the best physicians possible. Doctors educated at our school stay focused on what it means to be a great physician consistent with the osteopathic tradition — to cure, to heal, to comfort, to console, to learn, to discover, to honor and respect human life, to improve the human condition and to care.

Our faculty is the soul of our school. Year after year, the faculty’s incredible passion both supports and energizes all we do. Thanks to their professionalism and commitment to excellence, our clinical and research professors keep us moving forward — steadfast in our mission and inspiring generations of physicians.

Our patients — over 250,000 annually — seek out our physicians for their exceptional clinical skills and their abiding respect for our tradition of treating not just the illness, but the whole patient. We provide primary care and specialized services that address patient needs through the continuum of life — with nationally renowned centers of excellence focusing their expertise on the special needs of children and seniors.

Our partners are on an exciting journey with us as we strengthen clinical programs for a growing number of hospitals — particularly with our principal hospital partner, Kennedy University Hospital in Stratford, Washington Township and Cherry Hill — and build on an extensive and growing network of collaborations with other institutions, including Lourdes Health System, Atlantic City Medical Center, AtlanticHealth, Ocean Medical Center, Southern Ocean Medical Center, CarePoint and Inspira Health Network.

Our vision is to be the best osteopathic medical school in the nation. To educate the physicians needed in the future, we are increasing enrollment with the class size will soon become 200 students.  At the same time, we infused and continue to refine a bold new curriculum. New Jersey and the nation will depend on how successful we are in achieving our vision and how effectively we collaborate — across departments, within Rowan University, and with other academic, healthcare and community partners. Together, we can significantly improve the health and well-being of all who depend on us.

Our thanks for exploring the website for Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine.
