June 12, 2017



Alumna Lindsey Ling, MD, shares her Ross experience in the recent Wall Street Journal article, "Overseas Medical Schools Offer Remedy for Shortage of U.S. Doctors: U.S. schools can't keep up with demand for physicians, so international programs are stepping in with American graduates." 

Ling is a family medicine resident at St. Vincent's Medical Center in Jacksonville, FL.

Ling met her husband, Richard P. Bowser, MD, at Ross. He is completing an anesthesiology residency program at the University of Miami. They both graduated with medical degrees from Ross in 2014 and married two years later.

MATCH: Student Earns Anesthesiology Residency at Hometown Hospital

April 26, 2017

Dr. Joseph Mongone (RUSM ‘16) grew up in New Hyde Park, a town on Long Island, in New York. He never could have imagined that now, at the age of 28, he would be a physician, returning home to begin a residency in Anesthesiology at his hometown hospital, Hofstra-Northwell School of Medicine/ North Shore-LIJ in New Hyde Park. “I am beyond excited to have matched there,” he said. “I’m thrilled to be starting my residency so close to home and in an environment that I am so familiar and comfortable with and I know will provide me with amazing clinical training and opportunity.”

Dr. Mongone earned his undergraduate degree in Health Science from Boston University, but he said that he didn’t have a clear career path at the time. He began working in the NICU at Winthrop University Hospital in Long Island and found that he liked the environment. It inspired him to complete his pre-med requirements through a post-baccalaureate program, Sciences for the Health Professions Certificate at Farmingdale State College in Farmingdale, NY.

Why did he choose Ross? “I chose Ross University because after doing research into the school, interacting and working with residents who were Ross graduates, and hearing the positive experiences they had, I felt that it was the best place for a non-traditional student like myself to begin my journey to becoming a physician,” he said.

What most attracted him to anesthesiology, he said, “is the very unique role that anesthesiologists fill every day. It is up to the anesthesiologist to understand, comfort, and reassure patients while they are about to experience one of the scariest moments of their lives in undergoing surgery. To be able to make patients feel comfortable and reassured in their greatest time of fear and need is something I look forward to doing on an every-day basis during my career as an anesthesiologist.”
