Best Medical Schools

I meant to post this when it came out a few weeks back, but just in case someone missed it, here you go. US News & World Report lists the top medical school in the country. You can head over to their site filter their rankings based upon the following specialties:

AIDS
Drug and alcohol abuse
Family Medicine
Geriatrics
Internal Medicine
Pediatrics
Rural medicine
Women’s Health

Plus, you can fine tune your search so you can view the rankings based upon:

Location
Tuition
School Size
Test Scores

You can also see how they determined, what exact criteria they used, to rank all of these schools here.

They also have some really good medical tips and stats, for example:

Between 2005 and 2008, the specialty with the greatest salary boost was pulmonary medicine: Median pay rose from $180,000 in 2005 to $249,531 in 2008. The median salary offered to dermatologists was $270,000 in 2008, up more than 37 percent from the $197,000 offered in 2005. But not all specialties saw increases. The median salary for gastroenterologists fell by 1.5 percent over the past four years.

The number of female applicants to medical schools reached its peak in 2007–08, with a total of 20,735 applicants that year. For 2009–10, 20,252 women applied to medical school, slightly down from the 20,360 who applied the year before • About 3.2 percent of all male college grads applied to medical school in 2008–09, compared with about 2.2 percent of female college grads. The disparity becomes more apparent when you consider that more than 57 percent of all bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degrees were awarded to women in 2008–09, according to the AAMC • For the 2009–2010 school year, median in-state tuition at medical school (public) was $22,800; for out-of-state students, it was $42,210. Median resident tuition at private medical schools was $42,000; nonresident tuition was $42,472 • Students typically apply to about 13 schools apiece. Medical schools received 562,694 applications from 42,269 applicants for the 2009–10 entering class.

We here at MyMedicalMalpracticeInsurance.com also believe that the cost of professional medical liability insurance for physicians is a critical factor in determining where a graduated medical school student/finished with Residency should open their practice. With costs in states such as Florida, Illinois and Ohio……this decision is critical to the overall success of the practice.
