Adtalem Global Education’s American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC) and Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) have reached a combined 97% first-time residency attainment rate for 2023-2024 graduates.1 More than 800 of their students and graduates will be continuing their medical training at over 350 health facilities spanning 44 U.S. states and territories.

Adding Diversity to Medicine

Out of 153 U.S. medical schools, only 3% graduated 25 or more Black students, according to 2022-2023 data from the Association of American Medical Colleges. Combined, AUC and RUSM had more than 120 Black or African American students attain a residency in 2024.

Residents Entering Primary and Specialty Care

AUC and RUSM students and graduates attained residency positions in 27 specialties, including those that the National Resident Matching Program defines as more competitive, such as internal medicine/pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, and orthopedic surgery.  

More than 500 AUC and RUSM graduates will enter primary care residencies this summer where they can contribute to enhancing outcomes for some of the more than 83 million Americans lacking adequate access to primary care, according to the American Medical Association
