Results show yet another strong year for RUSM with a 95% first-time residency attainment rate thus far, for 2021-2022 graduates. RUSM students and graduates will enter residency programs in 23 specialties throughout 43 U.S. states and territories. Notable specialties include Dermatology, Orthopedic Surgery, Anesthesiology, Emergency Medicine, General Surgery, Interventional Radiology, Radiation Oncology, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Neurology.

RUSM has 17 affiliation agreements with hospital systems in 10 states, as well as Puerto Rico. Because we have so many affiliations, our students are able to complete all their rotations in the same location. And that comes with all sorts of advantages — fewer costs on your end, more time to build professional relationships, and more. Perhaps most important, it gives you a consistent clinical environment as you rotate through different disciplines.
The national average of students completing their residencies in primary care hovers around 40 percent. But for RUSM alums, that number is more than double at just under 90 percent. Additionally, following graduation, 40 percent of RUSM alums choose to practice in areas with a healthcare shortage. Our students are connecting with populations where their presence makes a life-changing impact.
Our mission is to educate and provide opportunity to a truly diverse and dedicated population of students who are determined to make an undeniable impact on the communities they serve. We offer a variety of scholarships and grants to help aspiring doctors offset the cost of their medical education.
