How RUSM supports students

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) ) at Ross University School of Medicine was created to help students maximize their potential for academic success. Leveraging advanced technology and progressive adult-learning techniques, this voluntary resource is designed to enhance students' study skills, familiarize them with the many campus student support resources, and instill in our students the concept of lifelong learning beyond medical school.

The CTL is available to assist students who are at risk of academic difficulty, as well as those who are performing well academically but want to take advantage of any resource that could help them do even better.

Some students learn strategies to reduce test anxiety or achieve a more positive work/life balance-others may need to sharpen their time-management skills, improve their study habits, or familiarize themselves with the resources available through the school's learning management system.
