TCOM ranks in top 50 medical schools for primary care
TCOM was ranked 43rd in primary care this year, according to 2009 rankings from U.S. News & World Report, marking our seventh consecutive appearance in the top 50.
Approximately 76 percent of TCOM’s graduates entered primary care programs from 2005 to 2007 – the third highest percentage among the top 50 schools. The other two Texas medical schools ranked in the top 50 for primary care, Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, had 43 percent and 42 percent respectively of their graduates enter primary care during the same period.
Each year, U.S.News & World Report ranks professional school programs in business, education, engineering, law and medicine. The rankings are based on expert opinion about program performance and statistical indicators that measure the quality of the school’s faculty, research and students.
To gather the opinion data, U.S. News & World Report surveyed deans, program directors and senior faculty to judge the academic quality of programs in their field on a scale of 1, which was marginal, to 5, which was outstanding. Professionals who hire new graduates were also surveyed for the rankings.
