College of Medicine Ranks Well for Research and Primary Care in U.S. News 2016 Best Graduate Schools Guide
- By Jennifer Nachbur
The recently-announced U.S. News & World Report 2016 Best Graduate Schools Rankings reported good news for the University of Vermont College of Medicine.
For the first time ever, the college will be featured in the print version of the annually-issued publication in the research category – ranking 57th nationally – a significant accomplishment given UVM’s small relative size. UVM was tied with Stony Brook University–SUNY and the University of Texas Health Science Center–Houston in that position.
In addition, the College of Medicine had an admirable ranking in the primary care category – the top quartile – coming in at 29th and tied with Duke University School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.
The six graduate disciplines that U.S. News ranks annually are evaluated on factors that include standardized test scores of newly enrolled students, employment outcomes for graduates, acceptance rates and other criteria. Because each graduate program is different, the rankings methodology varies across disciplines.
