Michigan Medicine’s position as a national leader in training the next generation of health care leaders is once again highlighted by the 2023 U.S. News and World Report (USNWR) Best Graduate Schools rankings, released today.

The U-M Medical School and Department of Biomedical Engineering are rated among the best in the country for their educational programs.  

The medical school is tied for No. 17 among medical schools for research and is tied for No. 20 for primary care.

The school’s reputation among residency directors continues to be strong. They were asked to rate programs using a scale from 1 (marginal) to 5 (outstanding), and those scores placed the U-M in a third-place tie among medical schools for both research (score of 4.5 out of 5) and primary care (4.2 out of 5). 

U.S. News and World Report also ranked eight specialties, and U-M achieved a top-12 ranking in all eight: obstetrics and gynecology (4), surgery (6), anesthesiology and internal medicine (both tied for 7), radiology (8), family medicine and psychiatry (both 11), and pediatrics (12).

The Department of Biomedical Engineering, which operates as a joint venture between the U-M Medical School and College of Engineering, is No. 9 nationally in biomedical engineering/bioengineering.
