U-M Among the Top Six Family Medicine Programs in the Nation

U.S. News and World Report released their 2021 rankings of graduate programs.

The University of Michigan Department of Family Medicine ranked sixth in the latest 2021 U.S. News and World Report annual Best Graduate Schools list.

"This is an honor and a testimony to the work of our amazing faculty and staff in Family Medicine, and truly exemplifies the Michigan way. Our motto has always been Coach Bo Schemblecher’s famous phrase, “The Team, The Team, The Team!’ and this ranking is evident of that work,” said Philip Zazove, M.D., the George A. Dean, M.D. Chair of Family Medicine. 

The Department has held a spot in the top ten family medicine programs for well over a decade, with a steady rise over time. The rankings are a testament to the consistent and outstanding work happening in the Department’s patient care, education and research missions.

U-M Family Medicine was among many highly ranked specialities at the University of Michigan Medical School. Surgery at No. 5. Anesthesiology , Family Medicine and U-M Internal Medicine all ranked No. 6, Radiology at No. 8, Obstetrics and Gynecology at No. 10, Pediatrics  at No. 12 and Psychiatry at No. 14.

Rankings for the University of Michigan Medical School's overall training and research capacity were notable. Our medical school is the No. 5 institution for primary care training, and we rank No. 15 nationally among research medical schools. Both rankings are up one spot from last year.
