From the Dean
Welcome to Roseman University College of Medicine!
The Roseman University College of Medicine (RUCOM) is here to produce the healthcare workforce of the future, developing clinically excellent, community based, socially accountable, humble, compassionate and inclusive physicians and decrease the health disparities in Nevada. This will be accomplished by innovative teaching, emphasizing not only clinical excellence, but also ethics, humility, empathy, critical and creative thinking, and real-world experience. Graduates of RUCOM will understand the complexities of communities and how the Social Determinants of Health impact both individual and population health. The communities we serve will be partners in our teaching and learning.
We will lead the State and region in creating technological strategies to achieve academic excellence and advance effective and inclusive health delivery systems. We are developing a pipeline of potential local and regional students that goes beyond the College of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Dentistry, for lifelong learning and service to improve the health (Urban, Rural and Frontier) of Nevada.
As part of the Las Vegas and Southern Nevada communities we as a team aim to collectively make a significant difference in an area of the country where thinking out of the box is the norm. Thank you for welcoming us; we look forward to working with all of you. Let’s make it so that what happens in Vegas is recognized around the world for excellence!
At the College of Medicine, we are building a pipeline from Nevada to educate and train the future health professional workforce of the state. Executing the most cutting-edge curriculum with the most up-to-date educational innovations and technology, immersed in the most vulnerable communities (both Urban and Rural) as a medical school that will be measured, not by just the excellent physicians we produce and stay, but also by the improvements in the region’s health.
Our team comprises nationally and internationally known and respected scholars and medical educators, teaming up with renowned physician educators from the area. We are committed to being part of this community, to diversifying our profession, and to producing socially accountable, clinically excellent physicians who embrace the frontier can-do spirit. We came to be part of something greater, to make a difference in a community’s health. We want Roseman to be where the world comes to learn how to do medical education right.
