UM Miller School of Medicine Ranks in Top 50 of U.S. Medical Schools
The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine has climbed four spots to No. 47 in the 2011 edition of "America's Best Graduate Schools" published by U.S. News & World Report.
"This prestigious ranking from U.S. News is further evidence of the high caliber of our students, our education and the research being conducted at the Miller School of Medicine," said Pascal J. Goldschmidt, M.D., Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs and Dean of the Miller School. "To be ranked in the top 50 of research medical schools reflects our deep commitment to educating the medical leaders of tomorrow, while making the discoveries that will help patients in South Florida and around the world."
Each year, U.S. News ranks professional-school programs in business, education, engineering, law, and medicine. In the medical school research rankings, 120 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, and student selectivity.
The Miller School's physical therapy graduate program was ranked No. 7 in the nation by the same publication. The program has finished in the top ten every year since the specialty was added to the rankings in 1995.
"We are once again appreciative of being ranked in the "Top 10" graduate programs in physical therapy," said Sherrill Hayes, Ph.D., P.T., professor and chair of physical therapy. "We look forward to continuing to represent the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine as leaders within our field, preparing the leaders of tomorrow."
Highlights of the graduate school rankings will be published in the May print issue of the magazine, while the guidebook will be available for purchase next week.
