The RUSM Difference

Start Your MD Online this September

Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) will be offering online courses this coming September semester. New students can expect to be able to complete the entirety of their first semester via distance learning, in the safety of their own homes. Now, more than ever, we are dedicated to teach those who have a calling to serve their communities in moments of need.

With the continuous evolution of the public health situation of COVID-19, we have temporarily moved our medical sciences portion of the MD degree program to an online learning platform in order to continue supporting our students’ education and maintain academic continuity. We are well-prepared to deliver an interactive online learning experience, while we wait to return to Barbados. Because of this shift, RUSM will continue to enroll and start first-semester students for the upcoming September 2020 semester, as well as future start dates.

About the MCAT Exam

Over the past several months, COVID-19 has significantly disrupted the availability of standardized medical school admissions tests in multiple countries, including the MCAT. As a result, Ross University School of Medicine has elected to waive the standardized admission test requirement for impacted applicants that are applying to the September 2020 semester.

NOTE: The U.S. Department of Education guidance permits medical schools to waive the MCAT requirement for impacted students when related to continued COVID-19 related interruptions. Please talk to an Admissions Colleague for more information.
