Selection Criteria

Cooper Medical School of Rowan University seeks students who resonate with our mission, who have demonstrated academic excellence, and who possess the personal attributes required of physicians. Our admissions team strives to build a diverse student body that will add value to our school and enhance the education of all class members. This may include groups underrepresented in medicine, first generation college graduates, students raised in Camden, individuals with unique service experiences, and those who may be financially disadvantaged.

We are committed to selecting students who have developed personal and professional integrity, the potential for professional medical competence, the ability to deliver compassionate care, a passion for lifelong learning. Intellectual curiosity, educational excellence, ethical conduct, understanding of medicine as both an art and a science, open-mindedness and tolerance, and a service orientation to the community will be valued very highly by our selection committee. Student selection is not influenced by political or financial factors.
