On Sunday, August 22, an Op-Ed article about the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University by Donald J. Farish, PhD, President of Rowan University was featured in the Courier-Post. In the article, Dr. Farish asserted that despite the current economic climate in New Jersey, conditions are optimal for building a new medical school in South Jersey.
Dr. Farish points out that the building project could bring an estimated 300 to 400 short-term jobs to our region. As the school opens, positions for employees of various skill levels will open and be filled by people from South Jersey, including the city of Camden. The Cooper Medical School of Rowan University will be an economic driver for the region.
