Top 10 Medical Schools for Research

January 15, 2017


Some of the most important work in the medical field doesn’t involve treating patients. In fact, it takes place long before a patient walks into a doctor’s office. That’s because every new treatment, every new or improved medication or medical device, every groundbreaking advance in healthcare happens via medical research, and much of that research goes on in America’s most forward-thinking medical schools.

Whether you plan a career as a treating physician or a medical scientist, you’ll want to aim for acceptance at a school that provides a focus on medical research. According to US News & World Report‘s latest rankings, these are the nation’s 10 best medical schools for research:
