    New Jersey City University and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-School of Osteopathic Medicine (UMDNJ-SOM) established an articulation agreement to encourage students to pursue careers in Osteopathic Medicine. Osteopathic Medicine promotes health and prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of human illness, disease, and injury. Osteopathic Medicine focuses special attention on the biological mechanisms by which the musculoskeletal system interacts with all body organs and systems in both health and disease. The Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) is a fully trained and licensed physician who prescribes drugs, performs surgery, and selectively utilizes all accepted scientific modalities to maintain and restore health. Osteopathic physicians are active in all 50 states.
