Research Propels School Of Medicine Into Top 50 Med School Ranking

4/17/2006


US News & World Report List Includes Stony Brook for First Time

RICHARD FINE MD STONY BROOK, NY, April 7, 2006 – The high academic standing of medical students and the broad range of research programs at Stony Brook University School of Medicine have helped to rank the school 50th among medical schools for research in the nation, according to the US News & World Report 2007 edition of “America’s Best Graduate Schools,” featured in the April 10th issue of the magazine.

Key to the ranking process is total National Institute of Health (NIH) research funding awarded to each medical school, combined with average amount of those grants per full-time faculty member. These factors accounted for 30% of the total scores. Other indicators are average undergraduate grade point averages and MCAT scores, acceptance rates, faculty/student ratio, total medical school enrollment, and out-of-state tuition fees.

“To be one of the top research medical schools in the nation is a testament to the continued growth of our research programs and NIH support, along with our high standards as an academic medical center,” says Richard N. Fine, M.D., Dean of the School of Medicine.

One-hundred twenty-five medical schools provided the data for the magazine. Each school is accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, the nationally recognized medical education accrediting authority sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American Medical Association. US News & World Report has ranked medical schools since 1990. This is the first time Stony Brook University School of Medicine has been listed in the US News & World Report top 50 medical schools for research.

Established in 1971, the Stony Brook University School of Medicine is the only medical school on Long Island. The School of Medicine consists of seven basic science and 18 clinical departments. The primary goal of the school is to educate caring and skilled physicians who are well-prepared to enter specialty training programs.
