Restructuring Medical Education
On July 1, 2013, the New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act goes into effect, integrating Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, with all units of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ), except University Hospital in Newark and the School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford.
This historic restructuring will strengthen biomedical education and research statewide and foster new public-private partnerships with industries that are critical to New Jersey’s economic prosperity. The ultimate result will be a research university that will rank among the most prominent and elite institutions in America.
This website, a combined effort of Rutgers and UMDNJ, is the official source for accurate information on the myriad details and decisions related to the integration.
