Trending Against the Norm: How One Top Scoring Ross University Medical Student is Choosing to Make a Difference in Internal Medicine
Date:12/1/2009

Craig Moskowitz, a fourth-year medical student at Ross University School of Medicine, is choosing to go into internal medicine to help fulfill an unmet need.

North Brunswick, NJ (PRWEB) December 1, 2009 -- Having distinguished himself with high scores on the US medical licensing examinations, Craig Moskowitz--a fourth-year medical student at Ross University School of Medicine--knew he could go into any area of medicine that he chose.

His choice? Internal medicine.

"People ask me all the time, 'Why internal medicine? You can do anything you want.' I'm really looking forward to going into an area of medicine where there is a real unmet need in this country. They are having a very hard time filling internal medicine positions with qualified medical gradates," said Moskowitz, who received a 261 on the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) Step 1, and a 254/99 on the USMLE Step 2--scores that place him in the top five percent of all test-takers nationally.

A survey by the Journal of the American Medical Association reports that only two percent of US graduating medical students plan to work in primary care. A University of Missouri study highlights a dramatic shortfall of these doctors --up to 44,000 by 2025. Federal studies project a national shortage of 55,000 physicians by 2020.

For more than 30 years, Ross University School of Medicine has educated qualified students who show the commitment and determination to embark upon the rigors of a medical education with the goal of becoming physicians serving their communities. Approximately two-thirds of Ross graduates choose to pursue careers within primary care.

Now in his final months of clinical clerkship training at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, Moskowitz will start his residency training in internal medicine at St. Mary's Hospital in Waterbury, CT, in August--his top choice.

"I completed both my internal medicine and surgery clinical clerkships at St. Mary's, so I'm very familiar with the hospital. They actually extended the internal medicine residency offer to me during the final weeks of my internal medicine clerkship," Moskowitz said. "I definitely have to attribute my success to Ross University for providing me the opportunity to attend medical school.
