The MacNeal residency programs in surgery and internal medicine are approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), which is responsible for accrediting graduate medical education training programs. “MacNeal Hospital is part of a network that serves the healthcare needs of more than one million in the Chicago suburbs. Their strong medical training program offers our students the opportunity to be exposed to leading-edge advances in patient care in a hospital with a real commitment to mentoring medical students,” said Joseph Flaherty, MD, dean and chancellor at RUSM. “We’re looking forward to this new partnership with Ross University School of Medicine,” said Diana Viravec, MD, Chief Academic Officer for Vanguard Health Chicago. “We think this will be a great opportunity for RUSM students to learn from a team of physicians and other clinical staff dedicated to training the next generation of doctors in the best practices of patient care.” RUSM students begin their journey to become physicians on the School’s campus in Dominica, located in the West Indies. There the students complete a rigorous, accelerated study 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 complete their core and elective clinical rotations in U.S. affiliates like MacNeal. In recent months, RUSM has begun or expanded clinical education affiliations with a number of highly regarded teaching hospitals. Last year, RUSM entered into a 10-year affiliation with Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield, Calif. to offer about 100 core clinical rotation slots annually for RUSM students. That partnership is the largest clinical affiliation in RUSM’s history. RUSM has also added rotations recently at Atlanta Medical Center, Memorial Regional Hospital (South Florida), California Hospital Medical Center (Los Angeles, Calif.), and Cleveland Clinic Florida (Weston, Fla.).
