U.S. News & World Report places WSU in Top 100 Best Medical Schools

U.S. News and World Report again named the Wayne State University School of Medicine a Top 100 medical school for research in its annual Best Medical Schools rankings.

The magazine ranked the School of Medicine 68th in research of the 188 medical schools eligible for ranking.

The school was ranked 86th in the category of Best Medical Schools for Primary Care.

Other rankings include:

28th Most Diverse Medical School

58th in Most Graduates Serving in Medically Underserved Areas

98th in Most Graduates Practicing in Rural Areas

111th in Most Graduates Practicing in Primary Care

Known for urban clinical excellence focusing on medical and biomedical education, hands-on clinical experience, research and community care, the WSU School of Medicine has been training physicians since 1868.

Each year, U.S. News & World Report issues its Best Medical Schools report and rankings based on a number of indicators, including quality assessment, peer assessment scores, residency director scores, research activity, primary care rate, faculty-student ratio, number of graduates entering specialty fields, and ratings by medical school deans and senior faculty.

This is the second year the magazine published a ranking of the most diverse medical schools. The Howard University College of Medicine in the District of Columbia took first place in the ranking, which considers the proportion of students who are Black or African American, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian or Alaska Native, or Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander.
