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 – Fifth
Internal Medicine – Fifth
Surgery – Fifth
Radiology – Sixth
Psychiatry – Eighth
OB-GYN – Ninth
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 Dean Mary E. Klotman, MD, 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.”

*This year for the first time, U.S. News & World Report conducted specialty rankings in anesthesiology, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, radiology and surgery. These fields were added based on suggestions from medical school deans to better reflect the curriculum taught at medical schools. The specialty areas of drug and alcohol abuse, family medicine, geriatrics, rural medicine and women’s health are no longer surveyed.
