Yale School of Medicine Is in the Top Ten in Latest U.S. News Rankings

March 30, 2021

The latest rankings by U.S. News & World Report place Yale School of Medicine at number 10 among the best medical schools in the nation for research. The school’s recognition as a top 10 institution for 2022 is supported by its strong performance in areas that the magazine emphasizes, including National Institutes of Health funding, assessment of the school by professional peers, test scores of admitted students, student acceptance rate, and assessment of the school’s graduates by directors of the residency programs they enter. U.S. News ranks Yale School of Medicine first in the nation for its program in psychiatry, eighth for radiology, ninth for pediatrics and 12th for internal medicine.

For the first time, U.S. News has published a diversity ranking, and Yale ranks 48th among 118 schools that were evaluated in this area, putting it in the top half of medical schools. Increasing the diversity of its student body has been a strong emphasis for the school over the last several years.

“These rankings reflect upon the outstanding medical students and faculty at Yale School of Medicine,” said Nancy J. Brown, MD, Jean and David W. Wallace Dean of Medicine and C.N.H. Long Professor of Internal Medicine. “We are making strides in our quest for diversity and inclusive excellence and look forward to continued progress in this area.”
