A dedicated colleague who has been at Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) for 19 years, Claire Joseph, MHRM, MBA, is transitioning from the position of Interim Director of Curriculum and Academic Director of Faculty Affairs to a new role as Director of Curricular and Administrative Support. In 1996 she joined the school as a secretary/receptionist and has held a number of increasingly responsible positions throughout the years, commensurate with her ongoing educational achievements.

Claire, a native of Dominica and a resident of Picard, Portsmouth, has availed herself of the educational benefits offered to colleagues. She earned a BA from DeVry University in 2007, and two master’s-level degrees from DeVry University’s Keller Graduate School of Management in the following years, one in Human Resource Management, and also an MBA.

In her new role, she explained that she “will be responsible for the overall administration of the operations of the curriculum division and for the implementation of effective curriculum support programs; and to provide leadership, coordination and integration of all curriculum functions and activities.” In addition, she will be responsible for providing management support and budgetary oversight and responsibility for the campus administrative support staff for all divisions and departments on the Dominica campus.

"Having a passion for what you do is more important than just doing the work."

Claire said that what she likes most about RUSM after almost two decades of employment is, “the team spirit and the fast paced nature of the campus. You are never left to do one thing all the time as opportunities are continually being created. Working at RUSM keeps you alert and gets you to be creative about things and how you can do them better,” she said. “When you know that you can assist or motivate someone to do their best and provide opportunities for growth, it is a great feeling of fulfillment. Having a passion for what you do is more important than just doing the work.”
