US News: Harvard University ranked best medical school for research in 2024

The following is an excerpt from Becker’s Hospital Review.

After a national controversy and a three-week delayU.S. News & World Report has released its best medical schools ranking for 2024. 

The publication’s famed rankings came under scrutiny this year, with more than a dozen top-tier schools withdrawing from the process.

Those institutions — including Harvard, Stanford, the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia — will no longer submit data for consideration beginning next year.

However, U.S. News can and will still rank them using publicly available data. 

The exodus represents a rejection of elitism and “one-size-fits-all” scoring systems; universities allege the rankings hinder diversity measures and uncenter students’ experiences.

The rankings are based on 194 medical and osteopathic schools fully accredited in 2023 by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education or the American Osteopathic Association that responded to a survey and provided data to U.S. News.

Top 12 medical schools for research, including ties: 

1. Harvard University (Boston)

2. Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore)

3. University of Pennsylvania — Perelman (Philadelphia)

4. Columbia University (New York City)

5 (tie). Duke University (Durham, N.C.)

5 (tie). Stanford University (Stanford, Calif.)

5 (tie). University of California-San Francisco

5 (tie.) Vanderbilt University (Nashville, Tenn.)

5 (tie). Washington University in St. Louis

10 (tie). Cornell University — Weill (New York City)

10 (tie). New York University — Grossman (New York City)

10 (tie). Yale University (New Haven, Conn.)

  1. Sharyl and Full Measure Team,

    Re : condition of education in America

    All evaluations of the degree of
    scholarship in colleges have
    been declining—since the Marxists had
    seized control of America’s Meritorious/
    Christian/White Culture in the early
    1960s (( planned and executed via the
    Hollywood and Music industries—read
    my report :
    “Savage Drumbeats,”
    which report explains
    basic Mind Control by
    the Agency )).

    Recall late black professor Walter
    Williams’ 1997 column, about how
    all academic standards at Harvard
    are dreadful—and EVERYONE
    makes the honor roll ( dumbed
    down to placate ACLU folks—who
    have argued ( falsely ) blacks’
    S U B S T A N D A R D
    performance – as compared with
    white students – evidences systemic
    races, rather than hereditable ability.

    the state of education
