The “US News & World Report” 2014 med school rankings are out (even though it’s only March of 2013). From what we understand, “US News & World Report” publishes the rankings in 2013 but labels them for 2014 because students keeping track of the rankings that come out now will be applying for the 2014-2015 academic year. So which university’s medical school topped the list? That would be Harvard University. Shocker, we know. Placing second is Stanford University. Another major shocker, right? Johns Hopkins slipped to third overall. In fourth is a tie between the University of California – San Francisco and the University of Pennsylvania. In sixth is Washington University in St. Louis. Then comes Yale University. On Yale’s heels are Columbia University, Duke University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor (all tied for eighth overall).
And how about for primary care? Placing first is the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. In second is the University of Washington. In third is Oregon Health and Science University. In fourth is University of California – San Francisco. Then comes the University of Colorado – Denver, followed by the University of Nebraska Medical Center, the University of Minnesota, the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, the University of Massachusetts – Worcester, and the University of Alabama – Birmingham.
According to an article in “The Baltimore Sun” on the medical school rankings, “The medical school rankings weigh in assessments by peer academic officials and residency program directors, research activity in total and per faculty member, admissions selectivity, students’ MCAT scores and undergraduate GPAs, and student-to-faculty ratios.”
