Rowan D.O.C.S. Mentoring Program

We are seeking your assistance to provide mentorship for the next generation of aspiring osteopathic physicians. The program, known as the D.O.C.s program (D.O.’s Counseling students), pairs students interested in finding a mentor with physicians who are willing to mentor and share their professional interests. A great way to pay it forward and share your experience! To register, please complete:

Medical Student Shadowing

Are you interested and able to have a medical student join you in your office for an hour, a day or a week? We have numerous requests from RowanSOM students to connect with an alumnus to learn more about a particular specialty of medicine through observation.

Residency Advising Network

Are you involved with or in charge of a medical residency program and/or willing to share information with SOM’s medical students about your residency experiences? If so, let us know by e-mailing the Office of Alumni Engagement at We maintain lists of alumni contacts for all medical residency disciplines and on request, share these contacts with our students seeking residency advice. This is a vitally important way for every alumnus to give back to RowanSOM!
