Feinberg rises in U.S. News & World Report Rankings

0

</head> <body> </body> </html></p></div> <p>Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine has moved up one spot to No. 18 in the 2013 <em>U.S. News & World Report</em> rankings of top research-oriented medical schools in the country. Among departmental rankings, women’s health is 10th, AIDS 15th, pediatrics 15th, and internal medicine 16th.</p> <p>“<em>The U.S. News & World Report</em> rankings provide one measure of a school’s reputation among its peer institutions, and I am pleased that there continues to be forward progress,” said <a href="http://fsmweb.northwestern.edu/faculty/FacultyProfile.cfm?xid=23239">Eric G. Neilson, MD,</a> Feinberg’s vice president for medical affairs and Lewis Landsberg Dean. “Our reputation assessment scores, in particular, have been consistently increasing over the last several years, which no doubt plays an important role in shaping our rankings. That said, I feel Feinberg belongs among the very top-tier medical schools and owes its reach to a superb faculty and staff and the work they do to educate a wonderful group of students and house staff.”</p> <p>Northwestern University’s medical school, founded in 1859, attracts talented individuals to its faculty, staff, and student body through its cutting-edge research initiatives, superb clinical facilities, global outlook, and innovative curriculum. Feinberg is part of the vibrant educational and cultural community of Northwestern University, an independent private institution founded in 1851, and is a central component of a premier academic medical center, Northwestern Medicine. Located on the Northwestern campus in the heart of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, Feinberg has built a national reputation for excellence through a strong history of collaborative, interdisciplinary medical education and research.</p> <p>The criteria that <em>U.S. News & World Report</em> uses for determining the top research-oriented medical schools include assessment by peer institutions, NIH research activity, faculty resources, and student selectivity. The nation’s 126 fully accredited medical schools and 23 schools of osteopathic medicine each received a score of zero to 100. This year Feinberg’s score increased 2 points to its all-time high of 66.</p> <p>The complete survey is available <a href="http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools">online</a>, and will be available as a guidebook on April 3.</p> <div class="tagcloud"><a
