Through your generosity, you can help us fulfill our mission to educate clinically skillful, compassionate, and culturally-competent physicians by helping our students defray the cost of medical education. Currently, 82% of Rowan-Virtua SOM students carry student loan debt, and of this group, more than 50% have incurred debt over $200,000.
