March 13, 2008 – (Edison, N.J.) – Ross University School of Medicine is pleased to announce it has added 11 new core internal medicine clinical rotation positions at Harbor Hospital Center in Baltimore, Maryland. The new rotations become effective July 1 and will bring to 15 the total number of spots Ross has at Harbor Hospital.


These positions are the latest in a series of new clinical rotations Ross University has announced in recent weeks. They follow the school’s addition of 60 new core clinical rotation spots in New York City at Bronx Lebanon Hospital and Caritas Health Care Planning’s Mary Immaculate and St. John’s Queens hospitals, as well as an expansion of its rotations in Ohio with the addition of Grant Hospital in Columbus. Ross currently has clinical rotations available at six hospitals in Maryland.


With over 5,000 opportunities available at nearly 70 teaching hospitals nationwide, Ross University offers more clinical rotation spots in the United States than any medical school in the world. In 2007, Ross had more than 1,300 students complete over 60,000 clinical weeks.


“We are pleased to continue to expand our presence at Harbor Hospital and are grateful for the continued confidence they have shown in Ross and our students,” said Dr. Joseph Chu, dean of clinical sciences at Ross University.


In addition to Harbor Hospital, Ross University also offers students the chance to complete their core clinical rotations at five additional Maryland hospitals that include Good Samaritan Hospital of Maryland in Baltimore, Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, Prince George’s Hospital Center in Cheverly, Spring Grove Hospital Center in Catonsville, and St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore.
