The Duke University School of Medicine is once again ranked among the top ten of all medical schools in the nation. The rankings were published by U.S. News & World Report.

Duke ranked 10th among 124 U.S. medical schools included in the magazine’s 2019 ranking, and was also ranked among the best in the country in seven medical specialties:

  • Anesthesiology – 5th
  • Internal Medicine – 5th
  • Surgery - 5th
  • Radiology – 6th
  • Psychiatry – 8th
  • OB-GYN – 9th
  • Pediatrics - 15th

Duke’s School of Medicine, established in 1930, is the youngest of the nation’s top-rated medical schools. The School of Medicine includes more than 2,200 academic and clinical faculty members in 23 departments, drawing nearly $740 million in sponsored research expenditures annually.

“We are pleased to again be ranked among the top schools and medical specialties in the country,” said Mary E. Klotman, MD, dean of the Duke University School of Medicine. “This is a testament to our outstanding faculty, staff and students who work tirelessly to provide the best education for our students, deliver the most advanced care to our patients, and make seminal discoveries that evolve our knowledge of the body and ways to improve health in our community and globally.”

U.S. News annually ranks graduate schools in six disciplines, including business, law, medicine, nursing, engineering and education.
