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.
|California Hospital Medical Center
||Los Angeles, California
|Center for Haitian Studies
|Mt. Sinai Hospital
|St. John's Episcopal Hospital
||Queens, New York
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.
