Academic and Business Continuity at CMSRU during COVID-19 Pandemic

The health and safety of the CMSRU community is our top priority. We continue to emphasize the delivery of a hybrid curriculum for our medical students, where experiential sessions are delivered in person and sessions that can be effectively delivered virtually are delivered virtually.  CMSRU employees continue to work hard to keep our educational programs operating, both remotely and in-person. Click here for Rowan University’s Employee Guide for Returning to Work.

Please note that all persons entering the CMSRU medical education building must abide by universal masking and social distancing protocols at all times. CMSRU badges are required to gain access to the building, and must be swiped again at the turnstile upon entering the lobby area. This will assist contact tracers in the event there is a COVID outbreak in the building.  All non-CMSRU visitors must have appointments and are required to submit a completed Health Assessment Form to Rowan Safety Officers stationed at the front desk immediately upon entrance.


For emergencies, we will provide updates via this web page, the Rowan alert system, Rowan email, and our twitter feed (@coopermedschool) and facebook page (coopermedschool).

Each individual and family should have their own emergency preparedness plan. Please continue to monitor your local municipality, county, and state websites, radio, and TV for any warnings or recommendations for your specific areas.

Camden County also provides an emergency notification system for regional or local emergencies. Individuals can register for notification via phone and/or email here.

If you have not yet signed up for Rowan alerts, please do so through the Banner system at this link.
