    ROSS UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE EXPANDS


    CLINICAL ROTATIONS AT MIAMI CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL


    February 6, 2009—(North Brunswick, NJ)—Ross University School of Medicine is pleased to announce it will add several new pediatric clinical rotations to its growing network of core clinical rotation positions in Florida. The new core spots will be located at Miami Children’s Hospital (MCH).

    These rotations, which will be scheduled eight times per year, offer experience in all facets of pediatric care from the most complex intensive care to the office practice of general pediatrics. The medical staff at MCH includes more than 110 specialists representing more than 40 pediatric specialties and sub-specialties in a hospital complex that houses 289 beds and provides numerous community-outreach programs. MCH sees over 12,500 inpatients and 160,000 patients in the outpatient setting annually.

    “The pediatrics program at Miami Children’s Hospital is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and enjoys an excellent reputation for graduate medical education and pediatric healthcare,” said Dr. Enrique S. *********, senior associate dean for clinical sciences at Ross University. “We look forward to further expanding opportunities in the vital area of pediatrics for our students.”

    With over 5,000 opportunities available at nearly 70 teaching hospitals nationwide, Ross University offers more clinical rotation spots in the United States than any other medical school in the world. In 2008, Ross had more than 2,700 students complete over 75,000 clinical weeks.

    Ross University’s other clinical training sites in Florida include Greater Miami Health Education & Training Centers (HETC), South Miami; Cleveland Clinic, Weston; Miami Beach Community Health Center, Miami; and Larkin Community Hospital, South Miami.

    How may spots per rotation?

    This is a great spot. University of Miami students actually do their Peds rotation here. Any Ross student who wants to do Peds should request this rotation spot.

    While it is awesome that Ross has gained additional Peds spots in Miami, it is really disheartening that there has been no official word from Ross about the closure of Caritas hospitals in NY and what will happen to students that are part way through a core rotation, or those who have future rotations scheduled there. It is unbelievable that not only is the clinical department NOT answering phone calls, but the calls are being "dropped" once transferred to clinicals.

    I have never been one to bash Ross, and I understand that the closing of Caritas is not the fault of Ross University (although the school did know about the hospitals poor financial situation when they signed the contract for student rotations) - but it would be nice to be updated as far as what we can expect and where we will go to continue cores that will be stopped without being completed. I don't understand why the school and Dr. F wouldn't allow us to switch our rotations when it was first discovered that the hospital would be shutting down. We pay plenty in tuition and the least we can expect is to be updated on OUR clinical rotations, for which we PAY and to be able to get through to the clinical advisors.

    So Ross University, Congrats on the Miami Children's Hospital Afflilation, but would you like to comment on the current Caritas situation??

    (I understand its easier to boast about acommplishments rather than failures, but hundreds of students would appreciate any updates on what we can expect when Caritas shuts down in the next couple of weeks.)

    Spoken too soon????

    I have actually heard that these peds core spots at Miami Childrens are not going to happen. Something about not being able to come to an agreement for whatever the reason. Did Ross speak to soon about securing that affiliation agreement....or is it just another case of wishful thinking? Hope someone from Ross can shed some light on this because its a bit of a dissapointment.

    Surfingmd, any more information about Miami Children's hospital? Ross had already made the announcement so something serious must have happened to void the contract.

    Latest news....

    According to Ross employees, who of course need to remain nameless....the contract between Ross and Miami Childrens Hospital is currently cancelled until further notice. I havent heard any details as too why but I am also very curious as to the facts. On a side note, kudos for Ross in going after this rotation. St.Georges has had MCH for a very long time and for whatever reason Ross had never been a part of it. I know for a fact that their are other hospitals in the south florida area, south of Palm Beach, that are willing to enter into discussions concerning the addition of medical school students into their teaching programs. Some of these hospitals are currently DO only programs but will either be training MD students shortly or would like to in the near future. If the Miami office keeps its ears and eyes open hopefully they will be able to expand core and elective clinical rotations to include more great hospitals in the underserved wouth florida area.

    If you want to do something, then you will find a way.
    If you want to do nothing, then you will find an excuse.

    from what i understand DO rotations are not greenbook. In order for these rotations to count towards MD core credit they must be green book or acgme approved rotations.
