RUSM Alumni in the News: Grads Making Big Career Strides

November 13, 2014

Given the recent observance of Veterans Day in the US, this week’s Alumni Roundup had an interesting twist: Two of our grads just popped up in the news this past week, and both of them have experience caring for patients at veterans hospitals. Their doctoral careers moved pretty quickly after they graduated from Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM), so read on to see how they’re doing right now.

RUSM Grad Opens Specialty Sleep Disorders Clinic

Kenneth Drane, MD, Class of 2010, recently opened a sleep disorders specialty clinic for adult and pediatric patients in Natchez, Mississippi. An area native who made a career change from engineering to practicing medicine, Dr. Drane completed residency training in internal medicine at University of Louisville, Kentucky, from 2010 to 2013. He followed this up with a sleep medicine fellowship in 2014 at the Louisiana State University Health Science Center (LSU Health), Shreveport.

In addition to his operating his specialty clinic, which opened in October 2014, Dr. Drane also has admitting privileges at Natchez Community Hospital and runs a separate sleep disorders clinic for veterans at Overton Brooks VA Medical Center, Shreveport. >> read news story
