TRANSFERRING TO ROSS

Your medical school education should be everything you dreamed it would be. Ross University School of Medicine will consider admitted students who have experience in other medical school programs. Course credits are not guaranteed to transfer to other schools. Acceptance of credits is subject to the receiving institution’s requirements.

Transferring to Ross for Basic Sciences

Students already enrolled in an allopathic preclinical program at another medical school who wish to transfer to Ross may be considered for admission into Ross' first semester. Our basic sciences curriculum is taught by experienced faculty and utilizes an integrated curriculum and highly advanced technology. You’ll have the support of the ROSS student support model to provide you the answers and resources necessary to succeed. 

Transferring to Ross for Clinical Rotations

Students who have completed an allopathic preclinical curriculum at another medical school may be considered for admission into Ross' clinical curriculum. Ross provides the convenience of single-location clinical tracks where students can remain in the same geographic location of their choice for all 44 weeks. With enough seats for all of our qualified students, our clinical curriculum keeps them on schedule and prepared for residency success.
