VERMILLION, S.D. -- The University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine (SSOM) is one of the top-ten most-popular medical schools in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report. Schools appearing on the list were recognized for enrolling the highest percentage of accepted students – 74 percent or greater. SSOM ranked seventh, ahead of the University of Nevada-Reno School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School. Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences and the University of Kansas Medical Center topped the list.
“The USD Sanford School of Medicine is proud of our medical students and pleased that they in turn think so highly of us. The School’s accomplishments and high national standing are a direct result of having great students,” said Mary Nettleman, M.D., M.S., M.A.C.P., dean of the Sanford School of Medicine and vice president of health affairs at USD.
This is the third time in recent months that the Sanford School of Medicine has been ranked nationally. In May, the American Academy of Family Physicians named the School to its top-ten list for producing family physicians, and in March, U.S. News & World Report ranked the med school in its top ten list for rural medicine.
