Partnership Program with Cooper Medical School of Rowan University

Through a special articulation agreement with the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU), USciences students can receive direct entry into medical school—putting you on the fast track to career success.

As a student in the 4+4  program, you’ll complete four years at USciences in any major before completing four years at CMSRU—earning both your BS and MD degrees.

There are only four seats reserved each year for USciences students. If you meet specific requirements, you’ll receive a guaranteed interview with CMSRU.
