Ross University School of Medicine Expands Partnership with Cleveland Clinic Florida

Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) announced an increased educational partnership with Cleveland Clinic Florida – the Florida location of one of the nation’s top hospitals, the Cleveland Clinic.


Cleveland Clinic Florida has been ranked as the number one hospital in the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale metro area by U.S. News & World Report (“Best Hospitals”) for 2018-2019. The move expands Adtalem Global Education’s (NYSE: ATGE) member institutions’ partnership with Cleveland Clinic.

Chamberlain University, another member of Adtalem Global Education, currently partners with Cleveland Clinic for clinical rotations for some Master of Science in Nursing students and those pursuing their Doctor of Nursing Practice.

All RUSM students will now complete their first clinical clerkship, Internal Medicine Foundations (IMF), at Cleveland Clinic Florida’s hospital in Weston, Florida. Through hands-on education, the physician-supervised IMF clerkship prepares RUSM students for their subsequent clinical rotations in a small group learning environment that lays the foundation for them to be residency-ready.

“As part of our commitment to providing the highest quality medical education, RUSM is proud to expand our partnership with a renowned teaching hospital like Cleveland Clinic Florida,” said Dr. William F. Owen, Jr., M.D., FACP, Dean and Chancellor, RUSM.

RUSM has had a long-standing relationship with Cleveland Clinic Florida, and will continue offering third- and fourth-year clerkships to RUSM students.

“Working side-by-side with physicians at Cleveland Clinic Florida continues to ensure our students have the tools and experience they need to succeed as doctors,” added Dr. Seeth Vivek, M.D., Assistant Dean of Clinical Sciences, RUSM.
