Academy for Teaching and Learning

Ross Med’s Academy for Teaching and Learning (ATL) is a strategic network of faculty who help integrate academic support throughout our four-year curriculum. From our pre-matriculation course to exam prep and beyond, your journey through Ross Med will include intentional touchpoints at critical moments, ensuring that you have the resources you need to unleash your full potential.

Pre-Matriculation Course

Before beginning your MD coursework, enrolling in our pre-matriculation course can provide you with the tools to successfully transition into a rigorous medical curriculum. This course is particularly beneficial for students who have been out of school for an extended period or pursued other career paths before entering our program.

Personalized Advising

Work with faculty to create a learning plan tailored to your unique preferences and aptitudes. Throughout your time as a student, ATL faculty will monitor your progress and provide proactive outreach when you need it.

Group Study Sessions and Tutoring

ATL faculty host a range of large and small group sessions to complement the medical science curriculum. These include multidisciplinary boot camps, organ-system-based formative assessments before exams, concept clarification sessions after exams, peer tutoring, United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USLME®) Step Exam preparation, and remediation courses.

Preparation for National Medical Board Exams

As a Ross Med student, you will automatically be enrolled in our Pathways to Step 1 course, which includes personalized advising and tutoring sessions as well as group reviews of USMLE® practice questions to help you prepare for the Comprehensive Basic Science Exam and USMLE® Step 1.

As you complete your core and elective clinical rotations, you can continue to tap into the ATL’s support through individual advising, NBME practice exams, webinars, and more.
