Ross University School of Medicine Succeeds Where Others Fall Short, According to Standards Established in New Report - Mar 24, 2009 - 5:50:33 AM
North Brunswick, NJ  - According to a new report sponsored by the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation, the United States is in dire need of more physicians. But while U.S. medical schools are working to rectify the problem, the report points out that the issue cannot be solved simply by increasing the number of schools or expanding existing schools.

"What medical education needs to recognize is that it has a fundamental social mission to train future physicians for a rapidly changing healthcare system that seeks different competencies than in the past," says George Thibault, MD, president of the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation.

For more than 30 years, Ross University School of Medicine has educated qualified students who show the commitment and determination to submit to the rigors of a medical education
