State Wants UMDNJ Reorganization Done By July 1st

State officials hope to break up New Jersey’s state medical school by July 1, according to the school’s president.

Townsquare Media

The Record newspaper reports that University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey President Denise Rodgers made the announcement Tuesday during a public hearing in Newark. It came as she discussed the proposed higher-education reconfiguration, which would have Rutgers University absorb three UMDNJ schools.

The plan, endorsed by Gov. Chris Christie, would transfer UMDNJ’s Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, the Cancer Institute of New Jersey and the School of Public Health to Rutgers. It also calls for merging Rutgers-Camden and Rowan University.

The Christie administration has not spoken at length on a timetable for the reorganization, its costs or the manner in which it would happen.
