Things to Know About RUSM's Doctor of Medicine Curriculum
North America Preparation
Our curriculum is designed to prepare our graduates to practice in the United States and Canada, where most of our students originate and plan to return for practice.
Basic Sciences Curriculum
Our basic sciences curriculum, called Medical Sciences, is an organ systems-based curriculum that organizes the teaching of medicine by systems within the body, like the digestive or respiratory systems. This approach, which mirrors how medicine is actually practiced, gives you a big picture look at the physiological, anatomical, and biochemical processes of an organ system all at once.
