NYU School of Medicine, part of NYU Langone Health, is pleased to announce it is No. 3 in the nation for research and No. 1 in New York on the 2019 U.S. News & World Report “Best Graduate Schools” rankings, issued today.
U.S. News & World Report uses a range of statistical factors to evaluate a school’s faculty, students, and research enterprise. The analysis includes assessments by deans and residency directors, research funding, acceptance rates, and the median grade point average and MCAT scores for incoming students. The U.S. News & World Report list is also based in part on subjective measures, such as peer assessment and reputation. One of the key factors in this year’s increased ranking is that U.S. News & World Report added several new metrics, giving more weight to the dollar amount of total research funding received by institutions, and per each faculty member. The expanded focus on this allowed NYU School of Medicine to highlight its progress in expanding research awards and funding, from both the National Institutes of Health and other sources, to further drive innovation.
NYU School of Medicine has earned national attention in recent years for reimagining medical education to address the needs of future physicians, with an emphasis on providing individualized education, such as its three-year MD and dual degree programs. Additionally, NYU School of Medicine’s Institute for Innovations in Medical Education recently launched a Healthcare by the Numbers curriculum designed to educate first- and second-year medical students about the many ways in which big data—drawing meaningful information from large public data sets—can inform and improve clinical care.
