“We are very pleased that U.S. News recognizes the value and strength of our family medicine program,” said Dr. Mary Nettleman, M.D., M.S., N.A.C.P., vice president for Health Affairs and dean of the Sanford School of Medicine. “It reinforces that our programs provide students with a valuable medical education and opportunities for long-term success in health care. It also emphasizes our efforts to provide the best trained physicians for the state of South Dakota.”
Each year, U.S. News and World Report rank professional-school programs in business, education, engineering, law and medicine. These rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinion about program quality and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school's faculty, research and students. The University of Washington topped the U.S. News list for family medicine training.
Criteria for the rankings include med school deans and faculty, who were polled by the publication in selecting the top programs in the nation. The rankings are part of the U.S. News Media Group 2015 Best Graduate Schools rankings available online at www.usnews.com/gradmeth. Highlights of the rankings will be published in the “Best Graduate Schools 2015” edition, on sale Tuesday, April 8.
