The University of Florida College of Medicine has maintained its historically high standing in the U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings of the nation’s top medical schools.
The UF College of Medicine held firm in its No. 40 ranking among 140 medical schools in the country and is No. 16 among medical schools at public universities, according to U.S. News & World Report rankings released in March. UF also remained the highest-ranked medical school in Florida. Last year, UF achieved the No. 40 ranking, the highest ever for the medical college.
The UF College of Nursing’s doctor of nursing practice program also maintained its standing as one of the highest-ranked programs, ranking No. 44 in the country and tying Florida Atlantic University for first in the state.
“These college and program rankings are the results of a sustained dedication to excellence in both research and medical education,” said David S. Guzick., M.D., Ph.D., senior vice president for health affairs at UF and president of UF Health. “We are proud of this ongoing distinction. The company we keep among the best research medical schools in the nation could not have been accomplished without ambitious and dedicated faculty in all of our health-related colleges. Ultimately, that benefits the many patients of UF Health.”
