She is faculty at the Longcope Firm and Core Colleges Faculty at Nathans College. and Her areas of clinical expertise include integrative medicine, internal medicine and medical education.

She went on to earn an M.D. from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and subsequently completed her residency in internal medicine/primary care at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York City.

Throughout medical school and residency, Dr. Rowland-Seymour maintained an interest in combining allopathic medical practices with less conventional evidence based healing techniques, all to provide the best possible care to patients. To this end, she pursued a two-year residential fellowship in integrative medicine at the foremost program in integrative medicine at the University of Arizona in Tucson under the tutelage of Andrew Weil, M.D. During her fellowship, she focused her clinical training and research agenda on nutrition, nutritional supplements, osteopathic manipulation and hypnosis.

At Johns Hopkins, Dr. Rowland-Seymour maintains both a conventional general medicine practice and an integrative medicine consultative practice. She is one of few physicians in the nation who have specific training in integrative medicine, providing her the unique skill set that allows her to consider patient care options both from a conventional standpoint as well as from an understanding of potentially useful complementary and alternative approaches to health and healing.

Having crafted her academic niche in the marriage of medical education and integrative medicine from an evidenced-based perspective, she additionally continues to teach medical students and residents both conventional medicine and integrative medicine in both the classroom and clinical settings.
