Assessment and Evaluation at RowanSOM

The Office of Assessment & Evaluation supports students and faculty achieve excellence by utilizing evidence-based assessment practices in fulfilling its educational mission. We strive to ensure the effectiveness of the school’s curriculum and the quality of faculty instruction so that our students are successful in meeting required performance milestones and physician competencies.  

We closely monitor institutional and national benchmarks and student performance metrics so that RowanSOM remains a leader in osteopathic medical education. 


The Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine tracks student performance through its RowanSOMetrics dashboard to provide ready access to critical data to help guide and support student progress.  Data on student performance in medical school, on national exams including COMLEX and COMAT, in post-graduate residency placement, and practice outcomes including board certification are measures of the school’s success.  The School also maintains a committee for Program Evaluation and Student Assessment (PESA), supporting the implementation of curriculum and assessment.
