Faculty Development

Our commitment to our students is demonstrated by our commitment to our faculty! We work closely with faculty through consultation to provide RowanSOM faculty and residents access to education, resources, and support across many disciplines, including: instructional innovation, diversity, collaboration, and ongoing professional skill development.

Through our initiatives, we encourage faculty and residents to continue their development into leading medical educators which, in turn, inspires RowanSOM students on their journey to become clinically skillful, compassionate and culturally competent physicians.
