School Overview

School Info

The UMDNJ-School of Osteopathic Medicine is dedicated to providing excellence in medical education, research and health care for New Jersey and the nation. An underlying emphasis on primary health care and community health services reflects the School's osteopathic philosophy. The School is committed to developing compassionate and culturally competent physicians from diverse backgrounds, who are dedicated to becoming leaders in their communities.

Curriculum

There is an emphasis on primary care throughout, with patient contact beginning in the first year. Cultural competency and interdisciplinary concepts are also emphasized. A simulated patient lab program and small group case-based learning are used. A limited number of students are accepted into an optional Problem-Based Learning tract. This case-oriented curriculum encourages problem solving and teamwork, and is geared toward the independent learner.

Facilities

The centerpiece of the campus is the Academic Center, a three-story, 110,000 square foot building that houses the library, basic sciences and anatomy labs, classrooms, lounge, student services, cafeteria and wellness center. The 74,000 square foot Science Center houses laboratories and facilities used for leading-edge research and experimentation. The 54,000 square foot University Education Center and the 120,000 square foot University Doctors Pavilion house the clinical departments and outpatient services.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
