Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science is committed to providing a student centered campus environment. Every two years we survey our students for feedback to ensure we are providing appropriate resources and services to promote student success and satisfaction on campus.

RFUMS students are overwhelmingly positive about the campus environment. Nine out of ten students would choose RFUMS again if they could.

The findings provided on this website are from the 2013 Student Satisfaction Survey. 1,001 students (47%) completed the survey responding to questions related to 81 aspects of our campus environment:

Our students reported satisfaction in 71 (88%) of the questions surveyed:

      o 95% of our students reported feeling prepared to work in an interprofessional environment when they leave
      o 9 out of 10 students are satisfied with the quality of education they receive at RFUMS.
      o 9 out of 10 students are highly satisfied with our student organizations, activities, and intramural sports programs
         and feel the academic support services on campus meet their needs.

Overwhelmingly, our students’ report feeling safe on campus.

We appreciate our students’ feedback. There were 10 questions that received lower satisfaction. We have already made improvements to campus which addresses many of those concerns. The other areas are in the process of being addressed. We appreciate the feedback of our students and use their feedback to continuously improve the student environment on campus. In fact – one of our students said it best on the survey – “I like the fact that (RFUMS) is constantly trying to improve upon itself. I’m not a huge fan of completing all these surveys, but I feel like you guys really look at the feedback and make ACTUAL changes based off of feedback. It makes me feel like my voice is heard.”
