Top Allopathic Medical Schools in the United States

· November 30, 2016 @ 8:55 am · Comment

 

What are the top allopathic medical schools in the United States and how are their rankings determined? The National Institutes of Health publishes a list of medical schools within the United States and the amount of funding that each school was awarded during a fiscal year.

In the 2016 Fiscal Year (FY), 26,383 awards were distributed to 138 different medical schools for the grand total of $11,944,682,938!!! The NIH received $32.3 billion dollars in the 2016 FY. The remaining $20+ billion dollars was allocated towards continuing funding for established grants. Please remember, these “rankings” are in regards to NIH Funding ONLY. There is no account for overall student competitiveness including match results, USMLE Step 1/Step 2 scores, achievements, etc.

This 2017 FY, if you are interested in any sort of research, talk to a primary investigator (PI) at your medical school. You can help make advancements in clinical and biomedical research! This year the following initiatives have been promoted: National Cancer Moonshot ($680M), Precision Medicine Initiative Cohort ($100M), and BRAIN Initiative ($45M).
