Ross University School of Medicine Expands Clinical Rotations in Miami
Date:6/4/2009

Ross University School of Medicine will add new clinical rotations in obstetrics and gynecology at the Center for Haitian Studies (CHS)/Greater Miami Health Education and Training Center (GMHETC).

North Brunswick, NJ (PRWEB) June 4, 2009-- Ross University School of Medicine is pleased to announce it will add new clinical rotations in obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) to its growing network of core clinical rotation positions in Florida. The new spots will be located at the Center for Haitian Studies (CHS)/Greater Miami Health Education and Training Center (GMHETC).

"There is a clear benefit for Ross students to participate in the CSH/GMHETC clinical clerkship because, in addition to being exposed to advanced technology in hospital settings, they will obtain the basic skills required to work with ethnically and culturally diverse patient populations," said Dr. Jean-Baptiste Luc Charlot, CHS program director.

CHS/GMHETC is affiliated with the Jackson Health System/University of Miami Miller School of Medicine's OB/GYN Residency Program and provides training and educational opportunities for students, residents, and fellows in meeting severe healthcare needs of the underserved populations in South Florida.

Through this new partnership, Ross University students will join in a comprehensive six-week curriculum and a supervised patient care experience in the Department of OB/GYN.

"Ross has a long-standing relationship with CHS/GMHETC through our fifth semester program and, more recently, the Family Medicine clerkship," said Dr. Enrique S. Fernandez, senior associate dean for clinical sciences at Ross University. "This new rotation will give our students the opportunity to train in a clinical setting and will also allow them to develop their cultural competency skills by working with underserved and disadvantaged populations."

With over 5,000 opportunities available at nearly 70 teaching hospitals nationwide, Ross University offers more clinical rotation spots in the United States than any other medical school in the world. In 2008, Ross had more than 2,700 students complete over 75,000 clinical weeks.

Ross University's other clinical training sites in Florida include: Cleveland Clinic, Weston; Miami Beach Community Health Center, Miami; and Larkin Community Hospital, South Miami.
