Your MD Journey, Your Community

Ross Med believes fostering a diverse physician pipeline begins at home. We want you to return your communities, to the very people who inspired you to be physicians, and to be part of the solution of providing access to quality health care.

Our Partner Hospitals

Ross Med provides early hands-on and community service opportunities at our campus in Barbados. We are expanding this model to key communities in the U.S. where many of our students complete clinical studies.

To achieve this, Ross Med has partnered with five hospitals located in regions across the U.S. to create a pipeline of diverse physicians of the community for the community.

  • California Hospital Medical Center, Los Angeles, California
  • Center for Haitian Studies, Miami, Florida
  • Mt. Sinai Hospital, Chicago, Illinois
  • Trinity Hospital, Pontiac, Michigan
  • St. John’s Episcopal Hospital, Queens, New York

We support communities by nurturing their aspiring physicians through the basic sciences and, then sending them home for clinical training. When this happens, these students are more likely to choose a local residency and remain in their communities to practice medicine.

You Could Complete Your Clinical Rotations
Closer To Home

Gain a global perspective and make a local impact when you enroll at Ross Med. Our Clinical Home Offer provides opportunities for eligible students to return closer to home for core clinical rotations.

Limited Guaranteed Clinical Return Home Offer

Local roots, global perspective. Spend your first two years in Barbados for the basic sciences and return home for clinical training.

Ross Med is guaranteeing a limited number of Year 3 core clerkships at five of our regional affiliate hospitals.* This is an opportunity for aspiring students who would like to eventually practice in their home community.

*There is a limited number of guaranteed spots available at each site per term, and Ross Med cannot guarantee that all eligible students will be placed at the designated site in their home area.  In addition to applying to Ross Med, being accepted, and paying the seat deposit before guaranteed clerkship seats are filled, students must meet all eligibility requirements listed below.  Ross Med offers three start dates per year in January, May, and September. New seats will become available for each start. An applicant may have the option to choose a later start if spots have been filled.


  • You must meet Ross Med’s admissions criteria and be directly admitted for an upcoming start date.
  • Your application address must reside within a determined radius of a core hospital, as listed below.
Hospital City, State Radius
California Hospital Medical Center Los Angeles, California 50 miles
Center for Haitian Studies Miami, Florida 100 miles
Mt. Sinai Hospital Chicago, Illinois 50 miles
Trinity Hospital Pontiac Michigan 75 miles
St. John's Episcopal Hospital Queens, New York 50 miles

No Additional Forms Are Required. Simply submit your Ross Med application and let your Admissions rep know you are interested in the Guaranteed Clinical Return Home Offer.

Your admissions coordinator will notify you when seats are filled in the term for which you are applying.

If one of our affiliate sites terminates its contract with Ross Med, every effort will be made to place you at the closest geographical site.

Retention of a guaranteed clerkship seat requires students to successfully complete the medical sciences curriculum and pass the USMLE Step 1 exam.
