If you asked an ordinary person on the street to make a list of the best medical schools, they would probably be able to name at least a few of them. US News ranks the top ten medical schools each year. The criteria used include: peer evaluation, residency director rating, grade point average, average MCAT score, acceptance rate, NIH research grants, NIH research grants per instructor, teacher-student ratio, tuition and fees outside state and outside the total number of medical schools.
Although the information gathered about this facility is important, it cannot really determine the quality of the doctors attending this school. Or does it do that?
First, let's talk about the people who deal with this rank. Of course, medical schools handle it - especially medical schools that rely on private donations to fund expansion and education. Obviously, more popular schools get more private funding.
Another possible group are medical students. Even if your prospective patient isn't worried about where doctors have learned their craft (or better to say just because they know their thing!), medical students know that when applying for an assistant, it depends on where you're from. If you make it into the top ten list of medical schools, you are a favorite of the residency program.
The next and final group of people to be discussed (dealing with the top ten list) will most likely be the large group. This group includes friends and relatives of students who attend the school. It seems that we are all proud of the achievements of those we love and care about.
Before actually splitting the list, it's important to clarify that some good medical schools may not exist. Keep in mind that this is a matter of ranking and what features were used to create it. It's not that the doctors who come from there aren't excellent and highly qualified when a school is rated low.
One more detail: the top ten lists are divided into medical schools for research and medical schools for primary care. Medical school rankings have always been a problem for schools and students. In fact, no ranking method works perfectly. When determining the results, almost every institution felt it should be judged better. Splitting schools into two lists (research and primary schools) at least solves the problem, but the method still has drawbacks.
