USD Med School cited nationally for rural medicine program
The magazine’s “America’s Best Graduate School’s 2012” guide ranks USD’s medical school No. 8 overall, ahead of the University of North Dakota, the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine and University of Wisconsin-Madison. The University of Washington was the top-ranked medical school for its rural medicine program.
Medical school deans and senior faculty were polled by the publication in selecting the best programs in the U.S. The medical school’s mission places an emphasis on family medicine and encourages graduates to serve people in rural areas and other underserved places in the state.
“We are honored that this ranking recognizes the quality of our education and our commitment to serving rural South Dakota,” said Dr. Rodney R. Parry, M.D., vice president for health affairs and dean of the medical school. “This is particularly gratifying because these rankings are based solely on ratings by our colleagues - medical school deans and senior faculty.”
The med school rankings are part of the U.S. News Media Group 2012 Best Graduate Schools rankings available online at www.usnews.com/grad. Highlights of the rankings will be published in the “Best Graduate Schools 2012” edition book, on sale April 5.
