For the 23rd time in the past 24 years, the University of Washington ranked as the No. 1 primary care medical education program in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 Best Graduate School rankings.
The family medicine and rural medicine training programs have also led the nation since those rankings began in 1991. The UW’s doctor of nursing practice program landed in the No. 3 position.
“Our goal is to be the greatest public university in the world as measured by our impact, and these rankings are a sign that we’re well on our way to that goal,” UW President Ana Mari Cauce said. “To see such broad-based excellence is a reflection of the quality of our faculty, which we’re seeking to advance even further through our campaign and through our discussions with policymakers. And given our leading role in educating Washington’s physicians, it’s particularly heartening that we continue to be the leading university in the nation for primary care, family medicine and rural medicine.”
Among UW's 50 graduate programs to make the top 10 list, Public Health is 6th in the nation (ranked in 2015).
