Celebrations were held in Miami, New York and Chicago on March 21 to applaud the achievements of Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) graduates who matched into residency programs this year. Hosted by the school and attended by Dean and Chancellor Joseph Flaherty, MD, in Miami, and by his Cabinet members, who were dispersed throughout the locations, the events drew throngs of students, graduates, and guests. The festivities in the three cities were linked electronically by video.

“It was truly heartwarming to share in this joyous moment with hundreds of happy graduates, friends, family, and RUSM colleagues,” said Dean Flaherty.

Anil Rathi, who matched in internal medicine (categorical) at New York Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, said that he was excited to be headed to NY. “RUSM prepared me well,” he added.

Yeissen and Linda Godinez were successful in attaining residencies through the National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP) couples’ match, both in internal medicine, he at Kendall Regional and she at Cleveland Clinic Florida. The couple met in Miami before deciding to enroll in RUSM together. Yeissen said they were happy that “we get to stay home” to do their residencies.

Christie Cherian matched in pediatrics at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Chattanooga.  “I’m super excited,” she said. “All the years of hard work really paid off.”
