About 770 Ross University School Of Medicine Students Match To Residency Programs In The United States And Canada

Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) graduates earned approximately 770 residency positions at hospitals in the United States and Canada. Members of RUSM’s Class of 2014 will continue their training in more than 40 U.S. states and five Canadian provinces.

“We are proud of our successful graduates and we are honored to play such a significant role in meeting the nation’s need for qualified physicians,” said Joseph A. Flaherty, MD, RUSM dean and chancellor. “More than 70 percent of those who have secured a residency appointment will enter primary care fields.”

Initial Match Day results from the National Resident Matching Program ® showed that in addition to the primary care fields of internal medicine, family medicine and pediatrics, RUSM students also matched in fields such as anesthesiology, neurology and surgery. They will continue their training in such prestigious teaching hospitals as St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Michigan, Rush-Copley Memorial Hospital in Illinois and Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC, among many others.

Texas natives David Sommerhalder and his fiancée, Ashley Veatch, pursued medical school together after learning about RUSM from a mutual friend. They succeeded in the couples match and will now begin their residencies at their first choice, LSU Health Science Center in Shreveport, La., Sommerhalder in internal medicine and Veatch in family medicine. “Family medicine is my passion,” Veatch said. “I love the diversity of the field and the continuity of patient care. It also allows me to promote patient education and preventative medicine.”

Edwin (Ned) Palmer, a native of the Detroit area, is headed to the Medicine-Pediatrics program at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, his first choice. “I am most interested in transitional-care medicine in patients with congenital diseases who live to adulthood and are poorly provided for by their adult or pediatric physicians. This is an entirely new patient population that is currently underserved,” he said.
