Rowan University’s Cooper Medical School Gains Accreditation

Cooper Medical School of Rowan University gained full accreditation for five years, the maximum time period for a new medical school.

The medical school, which opened in 2012 and graduated its first class this past May, was bestowed the accreditation by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), which bases its decision off of a five step process to ensure that the institution is up to medical education standards.

“The fact that our Full Accreditation is for five years is remarkable and affirms that CMSRU is headed in the right direction toward developing quality physicians of tomorrow,” said the school’s dean, Dr. Paul Katz, in a Philly Voice article.

Cooper Medical School of Rowan University is one of seven medical schools in Greater Philadelphia; there are also three pharmacy schools, three dental schools, a school of podiatric medicine, a school of optometry, and a veterinary school, all of which are producing world-class talent that is second to none.
