Miller School Moves Up In U.S. News Rankings
The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine has climbed two spots to Number 45 in the new edition of Best Graduate Schools published by U.S. News & World Report.
“Our continued rise for the past five years in the rankings is confirmation of the top-tier quality of our students and our education programs, and the groundbreaking research taking place at the Miller School of Medicine,” said Pascal J. Goldschmidt, M.D., Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs and Dean of the Miller School and CEO of UHealth-University of Miami Health System. “In the years ahead we will continue to educate the very best physicians and scientists, who will help patients in South Florida and around the world in delivering and advancing the best health maintenance and disease management.”
The Miller School has climbed a total of 11 spots in four years – from Number 56 in 2007, to 52 in 2008, 51 in 2009, 47 in 2010, and 45 this year.
Each year, U.S. News ranks professional school programs in business, education, engineering, law, and medicine. In the medical school research rankings, 123 schools provided the data needed to calculate the rankings. The medical school research model is based on a weighted average of eight indicators including quality assessment, peer assessment, research activity from the National Institutes of Health, and student selectivity.
The Best Graduate Schools guidebook will be on newsstands April 5.
