Shared excitement brewing at Rowan, School of Osteopathic Medicine

By ,

As the nation’s largest independent medical school gets divided and reintegrated, enthusiasm for the reorganization of the School of Osteopathic Medicine into Rowan University is growing.

Dr. Thomas Cavalieri, dean of SOM — which is still part of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey — said the program has been “extremely well received” by Rowan’s administration as the two schools navigate integration.

Cavalieri said the two administrations have held weekly meetings to hash out “every aspect of what we do,” and what that would look like under the combined institution. He said there are 12 integration teams focusing on getting all of the details squared away before July 1, the day the integration is finalized.

Cavalieri said he senses a shared excitement on both campuses, and that the SOM faculty and students are looking forward to participating in Rowan’s newly designated research school opportunities.
