Announcement from the Provost: Accreditation
Dear RUSM Students,
As you may be aware, St. George’s University (SGU) in Grenada is no longer accredited with the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP). This has caused several students to ask about our own accreditation.
RUSM is accredited through CAAM-HP. We have no concerns regarding our accreditation and do not expect any changes to our accreditation which would affect our students’ ability to become ECFMG certified and apply for US residencies.
Accreditation from CAAM-HP or other recognized accrediting bodies allows students to be eligible for post-graduate training and licensure in the 50 United States and allows students to apply for US federal student aid. Accreditation further sets accredited schools apart from those that are not held to the same rigorous standards. We are proud of our CAAM-HP accreditation, which has been deemed comparable to the LCME accreditation of US medical schools.
RUSM has a strong history of accreditation and recently celebrated another milestone: reapproval by the New York State Board of Regents for long-term clerkships in the state of New York through 2027. More information about our state-level recognition is available here: https://medical.rossu.edu/about/accreditation-and-approvals
If you have any questions or would like more information, please reach out to Nathalie Watty Brouwer, Director of RUSM’s Accreditation Services, at NWatty@RossU.edu.
