Opinions split on possible UMDNJ, Rutgers merger

Opinions split on possible UMDNJ, Rutgers merger
BY BOB HOLT
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

A task force chaired by former Gov. Tom Kean earlier this year suggested moving one of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey’s medical schools to Rutgers. But opinions are split at the schools on the proposed merger.

Governor Chris Christie on Monday named a five-person committee, headed by Celgene executive chairman Sol Barer, to consider changes to graduate medical education statewide.

Rutgers president Richard McCormick believes the reuniting of Rutgers University and the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School would propel New Jersey’s state university into the top ranks of all American universities in total research funding.

According to onthebanks.com, Rutgers ranked 64th in federally financed research and development expenditures in 2009. This ranking is influenced by the absence of a medical school, which could help attract top-flight researchers and research grants to Rutgers.
