Boston-based Harvard Medical School took the top spot among U.S. News & World Report‘s “Best Medical Schools” for research for 2019.
U.S. News‘ rankings for the top medical schools for research and primary care are part of the publication’s annual “2019 Best Graduate Schools” lists, which recognize the top institutions for several graduate programs, including business, education, law, engineering, nursing and medicine. The publication also published new rankings this year for graduate programs in other popular disciplines, including biological sciences, chemistry, public affairs, social work and criminology.
Researchers noted this year’s list decreased emphasis on medical schools’ perceived reputation by 10 percentage points, and added four new factors to measure the amount in nonfederal and non-National Institutes of Health research grant funding institutions received.
