Miller School Places in Top 50 of U.S. News’ Medical School Rankings
The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine has again been ranked among the top 50 medical schools nationally by U.S. News & World Report in the 2018 edition of “Best Graduate Schools.”
The Miller School is ranked No. 48. “We should all be proud that our medical school ranks in the top third of all U.S. medical schools,” said Laurence B. Gardner, M.D., interim Dean of the Miller School. “That ranking reflects real and consistent quality across all of our missions.”
The physical therapy program at the Miller School was again ranked No. 10 in the nation. The program has consistently ranked in the top 10 since U.S. News began ranking physical therapy programs in 1995.
The Miller School research mission also received a high ranking recently, based on grants received from the National Institutes of Health during the 2016 federal fiscal year.
According to data compiled by the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research, the Miller School rose from No. 41 to No. 39 of 139 schools ranked, with its grant total increasing by slightly more than $13.8 million, or 14 percent, to $111.2 million. That figure is $17.6 million higher than the next Florida medical school on the list, and retains the Miller School’s status as the highest-ranked medical school in the state.
The U.S. News “Best Graduate Schools” rankings are based on a weighted average of eight indicators, including peer assessment of quality, research activity through NIH grants, student selectivity, and faculty resources.
