Our Goal

Ross Academic Research Society (RARS) is a student organization that promotes research and evidence-based medicine at Ross University School of Medicine.

The RARS Blog was founded in October 2020 by the Fall 2020 RARS Executive Board.

The main purpose of the RARS Blog is to serve as a platform for medical students at RUSM to stay informed on current developments in research and to learn about the ins and outs of conducting research.

 

We hope the RARS Blog will give students a chance to share their perspectives and enhance their understanding of what it means to practice evidence-based medicine.
