Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine has been recognized as one of the best medical schools in the nation, ranking 17th among research-oriented institutions, according to the latest U.S. News & World Report rankings, released today. These year’s U.S. News rankings include several institutions with ties: Feinberg was ranked immediately after a three-way tie for 14th.

This is the 15th year in a row Feinberg has placed in the top 20 of research-oriented medical schools, and several departments were ranked highly in the specialty-specific rankings.

Feinberg continues to be recognized as a member of an elite group of world-class institutions, which is a testament to the dedication and drive of our faculty, staff, students, and trainees. I am proud of the medical school’s leading-edge scientific discovery, innovative medical education and commitment to transforming the future of medicine. I have no doubt that our outstanding reputation will continue to grow in the future.”

Obstetrics and gynecology ranked 6th, surgery was ranked 13th, pediatrics ranked 14th, internal medicine and psychiatry each ranked 15th, radiology rose one spot to rank at 16th and anesthesiology was ranked 17th. Physical therapy, assessed every four years by U.S. News, ranked 4th in the nation in 2020. In the U.S. News rankings of public health programs, Feinberg’s public health program was ranked 24th, the second-highest ranking for a U.S. public health program that is part of a medical school.
