Before Arriving at RUSM
There are many things admitted students need to take care of before they arrive at RUSM. You will work closely with your assigned New Student Coordinator (NSC) as you prepare for your transition to RUSM.
Your NSC will be there to support you from start to finish and will answer any questions you have along the way. Use this page as a resource to double-check everything is taken care of before you begin at Ross Med.
New Student Orientation & Week of Welcome
Upon arrival in Barbados, new students are greeted at the airport by professional staff from the Department of Housing. Students are transported with their luggage to RUSM Housing at the Villages of Coverley to settle in.
During the Week of Welcome, there are optional shopping trips arranged, as well as social opportunities to tour the Island, visit beaches and restaurants to interact with fellow classmates. All students are required to attend New Student Orientation sessions. For those on the island, students will receive their white coats and iPads during New Student Orientation Week.
