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.

What do you like most about this school?

"The environment, the faculty and staff. It is very open to student feedback and actually implementing helpful policies." | Report Response

"1) In-state tuition is very cheap ($20k), and out-of-state students can switch their state of residency after their first year. 2) The quality of the rotations seems to be pretty good. 3) They do a fair amount of well-regarded research here, and some of the faculty are well-known." | Report Response

"atmosphere, community, curriculum" | Report Response

"The small class size and the availability of the hospital right on campus" | Report Response

What do you like least about this school?

"I have no real complaints about this school." | Report Response

"First, the student body sucks. It's clique-ish and snobby, and people who aren't originally from NJ seem to have a hard time making decent friends. Second, they don't do a very good job of distributing research to all who are interested (for instance, they had 20 summer research grants to be shared between the 1st and 2nd year classes, each of which have >120 people in them). Third, they just switched over to a systems-based curriculum and it's obvious it still needs a lot of work. Because of this immature curriculum, the instruction greatly suffered this year and I've had to do a lot of "catching-up" on my own to ensure I'm prepared for boards." | Report Response

"distance from home" | Report Response

"needs more study space" | Report Response

Please provide any other general comments on your school

"The campus is nice and has a good number of newer buildings with great facilities; I just wish the social situation was better." | Report Response

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.
