AboutRoss University School of Medicine (RUSM) is a private Caribbean medical school with campuses in Picard, Dominica, and Grand Bahama. A majority of the students who attend the school are from the United States and Canada. The tuition cost of RUSM is higher than the average public medical school in the US but less than the average of US private universities. Since 1978, we have been providing an outstanding medical education to prospective physicians. In fact, Ross University School of Medicine has proudly graduated over 10,000 physicians during its three decades of service who have come home to practice in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. At Ross University School of Medicine, our mission is to prepare highly dedicated students to become effective, successful physicians. We do this by focusing on imparting the knowledge, skills, and values required for our students to establish a successful and satisfying career as a physician. Students choose Ross because of our faculty, curriculum and technologically advanced campus, and because of our well-earned reputation for providing the education that enables our students to pass their US licensing exams and obtain excellent residencies. These accomplishments are a testament to the quality of our Foundations of Medicine curriculum, dedicated faculty, and excellent facilities at our Dominica campus in the Caribbean. Such an effective learning environment provides a strong foundation for our students to successfully complete clinical rotations at US teaching hospitals affiliated with Ross University. In the past year, Ross University School of Medicine placed roughly 600 physicians in US residencies--more than any other medical school in the world. In addition, we are continually adding new teaching hospitals to our list of affiliates.
