Feinberg Once Again Moves Ahead in Med School Rankings
For the second year in a row, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine has jumped one space forward in the U.S.News & World Report rankings, moving from No. 19 to No. 18 in the category of Best Research Medical School. Feinberg shares the spot with Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
Rankings are based on five categories that can be classified into two areas: the opinion of experts (deans, program directors, and senior faculty members) about program quality, and statistics that measure the quality of the school’s students, research activity, and faculty. The medical school began participating in the survey in 1995 and ranked 32 that year.
