Want to Change Careers and Become a Physician? Check Out Our Online Guide

February 29, 2016

Whether you’re a teacher or a nurse, a medical lab technician or a computer programmer, Ross could be the next step in your journey to an MD degree. We’ve graduated students who have likely been in very similar situations to yours, and they’ve gone on to earn their MDs, attain residencies and fellowships, and move on to careers as physicians.

At Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM), we’re dedicated to giving students from all walks of life an opportunity to realize their dreams and become physicians. To that end, we recently created an online guide for students looking to change careers and enter the world of medicine. Expect the following in this digital resource:

  • A primer on what makes a “nontraditional” medical school student, and why these students could be attractive candidates for our program
  • A sampling of careers that our graduates have held before enrolling at RUSM
  • A step-by-step guide describing what you, as a career-changing medical school student, need to do to get your application ready for submission
  • Profiles of RUSM grads who have made the career leap—read about the jobs they held, and where they are now in their medical careers
