From 9 am – 1 pm, RUSM faculty and students conducted free wellness exams to members of the St. Kitts community. Participants were screened for blood pressure, blood glucose, BMI, vision, heart and lungs and then received a health profile along with their results.

Additionally, RUSM provided general healthy living education services including, nutrition counseling and a fitness station. These clinics provide a great opportunity for RUSM students to give back to the community where they are currently studying, while also providing them with hands-on practical experience in patient care.

In 2020, 91% of RUSM students passed the initial step of the United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE®) on the first attempt. And in 2021-2022, results show yet another strong year for RUSM with a 96% first-time residency attainment rate* thus far. Located on the island of Barbados and with a network of more than 15,000 alumni, RUSM is one of the largest providers of doctors for the U.S. healthcare system. RUSM graduates practice in all 50 states and in Puerto Rico.

*First time residency attainment rate is the percent of students attaining a 2022-23 residency position out of all graduates or expected graduates in 2021-22 who were active applicants in the 2022 NRMP match or who attained a residency position outside the NRMP match.
