RUSM In The News
When third semester student Dannie Sieben, ’25 was accepted to Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM), he hoped that RUSM would be an inclusive and welcoming campus. Not only did he find that to be true, but Dannie had the opportunity to build solidarity for the LGBTQIA+ campus community in the form of an organization.
On January 13, 2023, Ross University School of Medicine (Ross Med) welcomed the newest physicians-in-training of the class of 2027 to the start of their journey at the Spring 2023 White Coat Ceremony.
Throughout November and December 2022, Ross University School of Medicine (Ross Med) alumni and others raised over $11,000 USD to fund 2023 scholarship opportunities for current students.
The white coat ceremony is a special event that welcomes incoming medical students into the study of medicine and emphasizes the importance of compassionate care, scientific aptitude, and ethical behavior in medical school and future chosen profession. The ceremony is an important rite-of-passage that marks the transformation of a new cohort of Ross University School of Medicine (Ross Med) students entering as physicians-in-training.
Congratulations to RUSM alumna Varudhini Reddy, MD ’17, who was recently acknowledged by the American Medical Association as part of their International Medical Graduates (IMG) Recognition Week celebration.
On November 4, 2022, Ross University School of Medicine (Ross Med), in collaboration with the Barbados Alliance to End Homelessness (BAEH), hosted a Health Extravaganza at Queen's Park in Barbados.
Ross University School of Medicine (Ross Med) is home to many student organizations and clubs that support students in exploring medical specialties and cultural connections beyond medicine.
Being different is a unique character trait that some begrudgingly accept while others embrace and magnify the gift. Ross University School of Medicine alumna Sonal Bhatia, MD ’02, is an inspirational physician who pushes the envelope to help others who are ‘different’ and gives back to those who need a supportive voice.
With the motto — “The needs of the patient come first” — three Ross University School of Medicine grads are dedicated to uplifting patient care for residents in neighboring Central Brooklyn, New York communities with health and equity disparities as they begin their chief residencies at Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center, part of One Brooklyn Health System (OBHS).
The partnership will expand access for aspiring underrepresented medical students, creating pathways for students from minority backgrounds to fill critical physician shortages.
What does it mean to be named a chief resident? Your residency program director and/or peers feel that you are capable and ready to handle additional responsibilities in postgraduate training—such as mentoring and advocating for other members of your team, doing work to support overall program objectives, and other added leadership or administrative duties.
Adtalem Global Education has established a partnership between its two medical schools, American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC) and Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM), and Southern California University of Health Services (SCU) to expand access to education for aspiring physicians looking to earn a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree.
