No surprise here: UCSF School of Medicine was ranked among the top five medical schools in the nation in a survey by U.S. News & World Report.
Quality of training in both research and primary care was the focus of the survey, and UCSF is the lone school to be in the top five for both, the university pointed out in a release.
In research, UCSF tied for fourth place with Washington University in St. Louis. In primary care, it tied for fifth with the University of Colorado-Denver. Last year, UCSF ranked fifth in both categories.
The school also tied for seventh place in graduate programs in the biological sciences, with Princeton University, Scripps Research Institute, and Yale University, the school said.
It is also worthy of noting that UCSF received more research funds from the National Institutes of Health than any other public institution in 2009, with more than $463 million, in 2009, the school said.
