The MD Program
Ross University’s medical school program begins with a common first semester that gives everyone the opportunity to adjust to the large volume of material and fast pace of medical school teaching and learning. After First semester, there are two possible curriculum tracks — a four-semester accelerated track, and a five-semester, Ross+, track. Both tracks follow our integrated Medical Sciences basic sciences curriculum.
Modeled after curricula used in the United States, Medical Sciences is designed to allow students to address the processes of health and disease in a holistic fashion. What does this mean? In essence, our students learn the physiological, anatomical, and biochemical processes of an organ system all at once. This approach is educationally advantageous because it provides a broader view of how these different systems work together and make it more relevant in the clinical context. And, because we understand the importance of learning by doing, our students take part in hands-on training from semester 1.
Upon successful completion of the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) Step 1, Ross students embark on Internal Medicine Foundations (IMF), an intensive, physician-supervised clinical clerkship in Miramar, Fla., specifically geared to build competence in the principles and practice of Internal Medicine and facilitate success in subsequent Internal Medicine rotations and in the USMLEStep 2.
This additional six weeks of hands-on training through the Center for Haitian Studies Greater Miami Health Education and Training Center and conducted at affiliated hospitals and ambulatory clinics, allows students to further hone their physical examination, diagnostic, critical thinking, and communication skills through direct patient care. It also serves as an important bridge between the first four semesters and the clinical portion of the curriculum.
Ross students complete the clinical portion of the curriculum—and the majority of their training—in the United States at leading teaching hospitals across the country. And because our students are given hands-on experience from semester one, they transition into the clinical semesters with confidence and the tools they need to succeed. Additionally, Ross students have the option to complete all of their clinical rotations in one single geographic location. This is important because it not only helps to ensure a consistent clinical experience as they rotate through different disciplines, but it also helps to lower related expenses.
The clinical portion of the curriculum is without a doubt one of the most exciting – and most complex – periods of our students’ entire medical education experience. We understand how challenging it can be to progress through your rotations while staying on track to earn your medical degree and prepare for residency. Which is why we implemented the
Rely On Student Service (ROSS) model. This student support feature links every Ross clinical student with their own team of dedicated advisors who will be with you every step of the way, so you can stay focused on the important task at hand – your clinical training.
