Ross University School Of Medicine And Ross University School Of Veterinary Medicine To Recognize More Than 1,000 Graduates

Stocks in this article: DV

New graduates of Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) and Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) will converge for a joint commencement ceremony on June 8 at the IZOD Center in the Meadowlands Complex in East Rutherford, N.J. William Karesh, DVM, a pioneer in the One Health movement, will deliver the keynote address.

The One Health initiative encourages collaboration between physicians, veterinarians, and other healthcare professionals to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment.

“The health of people, animals, and the planet are inextricably linked,” said Karesh, executive vice president for health and policy at Eco Health Alliance, a One Health-focused organization. “I'm honored to address this year’s graduates of Ross University School of Medicine and Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. These are the only two schools I am aware of that are putting the concept of One Health directly into its commencement ceremony, recognizing that physicians and veterinarians are equally integral to the future of health worldwide.”

RUSM will confer Doctor of Medicine degrees on nearly 900 graduates, while RUSVM will award about 300 Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees. The commencement ceremony marks the end of an eventful year for both schools. RUSM graduates, under the leadership of dean and chancellor Joseph Flaherty, MD, landed a record number of residency positions. At RUSVM, newly appointed dean Elaine Watson, PhD has undertaken a strategic plan to develop the school’s research agenda and postgraduate education programs.

Andrew Jeon, MD, MBA, president of DeVry Medical International (DMI), will also address the graduates. This will be Jeon’s first Ross graduation since joining DMI in October 2011. “RUSM and RUSVM have a wonderful tradition of educating healthcare professionals to serve society. I have been both impressed and inspired by the energy, enthusiasm, and dedication of our students. It is a privilege to share this occasion with our 2012 graduates,” said Jeon.
