The annual U.S.News & World Report “America’s Best Graduate Schools” list was released today (March 16) and The Ohio State University College of Medicine was ranked 33rd among all research medical schools in the United States. Among research medical schools at public universities, we are ranked 11th. U.S. News also ranks medical schools for their primary care training using different methodology than the research rankings. This year, our College of Medicine ranked 29th for primary care training.
In addition to the annual rankings for nursing and medicine, U.S. News is publishing new rankings of programs in occupational therapy, pharmacy and physical therapy this year.
I am pleased to announce that two Health and Rehabilitation Sciences programs improved significantly in these rankings. Our Occupational Therapy program moved from 15th to 12th in the nation and our Physical Therapy program moved from 19th to 10th. These programs are ranked every five years.
I’d also like to share the rankings of other Ohio State Health Sciences colleges, which reflect our collective commitment to quality and excellence in educating the health professionals of tomorrow:
• College of Nursing is ranked 26th.
• College of Pharmacy is listed 6th, up one position from last year.
The College of Public Health (19th) and College of Veterinary Medicine (5th) earned high marks in previous years and the magazine reprints rankings from those years in the current edition. U.S. News does not rank the colleges of Dentistry and Optometry.
Thank you for your continued commitment to our College of Medicine. All of you are important to our quality, reputation and impact.
