Best medical schools for 8 specialties: US News

As part of its annual best graduate schools lists, US News & World Report conducted specialty rankings in anesthesiology, family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, radiology, and surgery.

The rankings, released March 29, are based on ratings by medical school deans and senior faculty from 130 medical and osteopathic schools fully accredited in 2021 by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education or the American Osteopathic Association that responded to a survey and provided data to U.S. News in fall 2021 and early 2022.

Survey respondents each identified up to 15 schools offering the best programs in each of the eight specialties. Schools or programs receiving at least seven nominations in a specialty area were ranked in descending order based on number of votes in each specialty.
