WATCH: RUSM Graduation Ceremony Video Now Online

June 12, 2015

Ross University School of Medicine's 2015 Graduation Ceremony—held on May 30, 2015, at the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Florida—was attended by about 700 of the more-than-1,000 men and women who were eligible to graduate this year, plus thousands of friends and family members. We captured the entire graduation ceremony on video, which we're now making available here for you.

The commencement address was delivered by two-time Pulitzer-Prize winner, New York Times columnist and author Nicholas Kristof. Kristof’s columns focus on global health, poverty and gender issues in the developing world, and more.

2015 Accomplishments at RUSM to Date

We’re halfway through 2015, and it’s been a big year not just for RUSM’s latest group of graduates, but for the institution itself. Some highlights include:

  • Record-Breaking RUSM Match Year: RUSM again broke institutional records in this year’s residency match event, which saw more than 800  of our students earning coveted residencies in teaching hospitals across the United States. Our alumni earned residencies in competitive specialties—like ophthalmology, neurology, and surgery —while also obtaining placements in primary care programs, like internal medicine, pediatrics, and family medicine. With our new residency total, we’ve broken institutional records for the second year in a row.
  • New Student Center Opens: Officially opened on May 14, RUSM’s brand-new Student Center is the largest building on campus and is intended to become the hub for the RUSM community and a welcoming facility for visitors. Designed to provide gathering spaces that promote collaboration among students and faculty, the Student Center contains the library, student study space, multipurpose rooms, the Center for Teaching and Learning, food facilities that include a large dining area and space for three vendors, space for a campus store, and offices for the Departments of Student Affairs and Student Services.
  • RUSM’s Step 1 Pass Rate Above US/Canadian Students: For the fourth year in a row, Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) students collectively achieved a first-time pass rate on Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE) that is on par with US students who took the exam. RUSM students’ Step 1 first-time pass rate for calendar year 2014 is 97%, topping the rate of US/Canadian schools (96%) and osteopathic schools (93%)
