Mount Sinai School of Medicine Ranked in the Top 20 Best Medical Schools by US News & World Report

The 2011 US News & World Report has ranked Mount Sinai School of Medicine 18th out of 146 medical schools and schools of osteopathic medicine nationwide, jumping from 32nd in 2005.

New York (Vocus) April 19, 2010 -- The 2011 US News & World Report has ranked Mount Sinai School of Medicine 18th out of 146 medical schools and schools of osteopathic medicine nationwide, jumping from 32nd in 2005. Mount Sinai’s improvement in the rankings is one of the largest by any institution.

The new rankings were released April 15th in the 2011 edition of the US News & World Report “America’s Best Graduate Schools” issue. “This achievement is the result of our commitment to provide a top-tier education, one that gives students many opportunities to be mentored by, and to conduct research with, world-renowned scientists and physicians,” says Dennis S. Charney, MD, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean of Mount Sinai School of Medicine and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.

US News & World Report rankings are based on statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students. This information is obtained through surveys of program directors as well as academics and professionals. Criteria used in the rankings include peer assessment surveys, research activity, grade point averages, MCAT scores, and National Institutes of Health funding. Mount Sinai’s ranking in NIH funding also continues to improve as it is currently ranked in the top 20 medical schools in receipt of such funding.
