    Advertisements



    The following release just came out today:



    Ross University School of Medicine Expands Clinical Rotations


    At Bronx Lebanon Hospital in New York City



    Ten New Family Medicine Positions to be Added



    March 3, 2008 – (Edison, N.J.) – Ross University School of Medicine is pleased to announce it has added 10 new core family medicine clinical rotation spots at Bronx Lebanon Hospital in New York City. The new rotations become effective March 8 and will bring to 20 the total number of spots Ross has in Bronx Lebanon’s Family Medicine Department.

    The announcement follows Ross University’s recent addition of 50 core clinical rotation spots at Caritas Health Care Planning’s Mary Immaculate and St. John’s Queens hospitals in New York City. Ross currently has clinical rotations available at 22 hospitals in New York.

    With over 1,100 opportunities available at more than 70 institutions nationwide, Ross University offers more clinical rotation spots in the United States than any medical school in the world. In 2007, Ross had more than 1,300 students complete over 60,000 clinical weeks.

    “We are very excited to increase our presence at Bronx Lebanon, one of the finest hospitals and family medicine providers in the New York area,” said Dr. ****** Chu, dean of clinical sciences at Ross University. “We are also very proud of the continued confidence Bronx Lebanon shows in our students and their abilities. We look forward to continuing to work together and further expanding our relationship.”

    In addition to Bronx Lebanon, Ross University also offers students the chance to complete their core clinical rotations at 21 additional New York-area hospitals that include Brookdale Hospital Medical Center, Brooklyn Hospital Center, King’s County Hospital Center, Long Beach Medical Center, Long Island College Hospital, Lutheran Medical Center, Maimonides Medical Center, Mary Immaculate Hospital, Mount Vernon Hospital, New York Downtown Hospital, North General Hospital, NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases, Peninsula Hospital Center, Queen’s Hospital Center, Rochester General Hospital, Staten Island University Hospital, St. Barnabas Hospital, St. Clare’s Hospital of Schenectady, St. John’s Episcopal Hospital, St. John’s Queens Hospital, and Wyckoff Heights Medical Center.

    I noticed that King's is on Ross' list of New York hospitals. Isn't that the same "Kings" included in SGU's exclusive deal with HHC hospitals. If so, Kings is no longer a Ross site.

    Ross is STILL scheduling students at Kings, and students are STILL rotating there... guess the SGU suckers weren't so exclusive after all...


    BTW, this Bronx-Lebanon thing is old news. What we need is a statement from Ross concerning their efforts in increasing the number of PEDIATRICS spots... Why are they so hard to come by?

    For AUCMD2006, what exactly is your reason for that post? Actually, I just checked Ross's site and the release you are referring to was a previous announcement of another deal with Caritas. So it looks like Ross is making a lot of progress while others (probably AUC) are losing spots and keeping quiet. I have seen your negative posts on other threads as well. So please do us all a favor and go back to AUC boards - you are not dissuading anyone from going to Ross. The moderators should really do a better job of monitoring these posts. It is one thing to have an opinion; it is another to have clear motives.

    ..the only motive AUCMD has (and has had in the 4 years that i have seen him post) is for prospective students to have a realisitc view of what to expect when going to an offshore school.

    He has always been an advocate for the more well established schools and has noted time and time again that any of the 4 established schools will get you where you want to be. But over the last few months (almost 2 years really)- ..Ross students are the ones that brought this to light and it is Ross students that are concerned and are letting others know about it.

    read over old posts on this topic as well as some of AUCMDs old posts and actually know something before you open your mouth.

    the mods need to do a better job with monitoring the newbies-they are creating a fuss over in the smu forum and now trying to do it here as well....

    and his point? was that the news about those FM spots at bronx lebanon was posted HERE a couple of weeks ago...
