Basic Science at Rowan-Virtua SOM

Our dedicated faculty are committed to teaching medical students the fundamentals of science and research to help expand their knowledge of treatment options and the mind-body connection. A core component of our two basic science departments (Cell Biology & Neuroscience and Molecular Biology) is the mentorship of students who are focused on a research-oriented path. We accomplish this through hands-on research and courses offered through our doctoral programs (including a D.O./Ph.D. track), and a number of masters and certificate programs created in partnership with Rowan GSBS.

Our investment in the future of research

We believe it is essential for institutions to invest in the future of research and medicine, a goal we achieve through two outreach programs: the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program recruits undergraduate students considering graduate education in biomedical sciences; and the Summer Medical Research Fellowship (SMRF) is open to SOM medical students who have been accepted to participate in a six-week research project with a faculty mentor.
