Admissions Requirements
Applicants are expected to have earned a Bachelors degree (or equivalent) from an American, Canadian, or other internationally recognized college or university. Occasionally applicants qualify for admission upon the completion of 90 credits (ie, three full-time years) of baccalaureate studies. In any case, pre-medical studies must normally include the following college-level courses: Inorganic or General Chemistry (with labs) 1 Year /8 hours, Organic Chemistry (with labs) 1 Year /8 hours, General Biology or Zoology (with labs) 1 Year /8 hours, Physics (with labs) 1 Year /8 hours, Mathematics (preferably Calculus or Statistics) 1 Semester /3 hours, and English 1 Year /6 hours. It is recommended that courses providing a broad background in the humanities be part of the pre-medical preparation. Applicants who have completed their undergraduate studies in countries having an educational system different from that of the United States will be evaluated on their merits but will be expected to have completed a pre-medical curriculum comparable to that described above. All required documents, if originally in a foreign language, must be accompanied by a notarized English translation. All transcripts documenting post-secondary course work completed in institutions outside the United States must also be evaluated by an approved international credential evaluation service. Contact the Admissions Office for more information on these matters. Examination Requirements: Applicants presenting less than 60 upper-division credits from an English language college or university must provide the official record of the scores for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Ross University requires Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) scores. Any applicant who took the test more than one time, must submit all the results prior to enrollment.

Graduates

In order to be eligible for residency programs, which usually begin on July 1 of every year, students must graduate by June and have their Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) certification in hand by June 30th of that year. Non-US citizens who are not permanent residents must obtain the appropriate visa in order to be eligible for US residencies. Ross students and graduates seeking a residency position are able to enroll in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) provided they have submitted proof of having passed the examinations required to obtain certification from the ECFMG. The NRMP matches applicants with appropriate institutions offering residency positions and ECFMG certification must be obtained before residency training can begin. The Department of Graduate Affairs is dedicated to helping students through this process. It also assists students in applying for licensing to state boards of medicine. The pre-application process for residency includes requests for forms, a Dean's Letter, and other requirements.
