CUMC Schools Strong in Rankings

In the 2008 U.S. News & World Report annual rankings recently released, the College of Physicians & Surgeons moved up to be ranked No. 10 out of 125 medical schools in the country. The Mailman School of Public Health maintained its No. 6 ranking, and the School of Nursing retained its strong ranking of No. 19 out of more than 400 nursing master’s programs nationally. In addition, P&S and the School of Nursing both rose in selected specialty program rankings. Dental colleges are not ranked, but the College of Dental Medicine scored well by two other measures — its ’06 class of 75 students scored second highest in the country in admissions DAT testing (similar to MCATs for medical school); in research, the college ranks 18th among 125 institutions receiving funding from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. A complete description of the rankings is available at rankings.
