Ross University School of Medicine Expands Education Agreement with Cleveland Clinic Florida

  (January 08, 2013)

MIRAMAR, Fla. (PRWEB) January 08, 2013

Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) today announced that it has expanded its affiliation with Cleveland Clinic Florida. RUSM students now have the option of completing internal medicine and surgery training at the teaching hospital in Weston.

Cleveland Clinic Florida, one of the campuses of the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, is a non-for-profit, multi-specialty, fully integrated medical center. Several of their programs, including internal medicine and surgery, are approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), one of the largest private organizations in the United States responsible for accrediting graduate medical training programs.

Cleveland Clinic Florida offers one of the strongest medical training programs in the state, said Dr. Joseph Flaherty, dean and chancellor at RUSM. Our strengthened relationship with the hospital presents a great opportunity for the more than 400 Ross medical students who are from the region.


RUSM students begin their journey to become physicians on the schools campus in Dominica, located in the West Indies. Students complete a rigorous, four-semester accelerated study program in the basic sciences. The campus features a cutting-edge anatomy and medical imaging laboratory, as well as a simulation center where students begin to develop clinical skills. Students then complete their medical education by taking core and elective clinical rotations in U.S. affiliates such as Cleveland Clinic Florida.

With the addition of the internal medicine and surgery clerkships, RUSM students can choose from nearly 30 clinical clerkships at Cleveland Clinic Florida, including anesthesiology, infectious disease, neurology, plastic surgery, and pulmonary medicine.          

In recent months, RUSM has begun or expanded clinical education affiliations with a number of highly regarded teaching hospitals. In May, RUSM entered into a 10-year affiliation agreement with Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield, Calif., which provides about 100 core clinical rotation slots annually to RUSM students. That partnership is the largest clinical affiliation in RUSMs history. RUSM also has added rotations recently at Atlanta Medical Center, Memorial Regional Hospital in South Florida, California Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles, Calif., and Vanguard MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, Ill., a suburb of Chicago.
