Cooper Medical School of Rowan University initiated the Primary Urban Partnership (PUP) in 2011. The goal of this program is to provide elementary school students early exposure to health professions. CMSRU students, faculty, and staff conduct bi-monthly sessions that engage students in health related subjects. The sessions range from large group interactive sessions to small group reading activities.
PUP currently works with two Camden schools: Wiggins Elementary and Camden's Promise Charter School. Every other week, CMSRU students teach STEM based lessons and activities.
