Saw it From other forum, and I think it's helpful when it comes to ranking:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here we present the 10 Best and 10 Worst locations for medical schools in the United States and Canada as rated by our members.

Rank 10 Best Score
1 University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine 9.7
2 Weill Medical College at Cornell University 9.43
3 Medical University of South Carolina College of Medicine 9.41
4 New York University School of Medicine 9.4
5 University of Washington School of Medicine 9.4
6 McGill University Faculty of Medicine 9.38
7 Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine 9.38
8 George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences 9.28
9 University of California San Francisco School of Medicine 9.17
10 University of California San Diego School of Medicine 9.16

Rank 10 Worst Score
1 Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine 4.08
2 University of North Dakota School of Medicine 4.27
3 University of South Dakota School of Medicine 4.42
4 Texas Tech University 4.91
5 University of Missouri Kansas City School of Medicine 4.92
6 Southern Illinois University School of Medicine 4.97
7 University of Connecticut School of Medicine 5.03
8 Albany Medical College 5.1
9 Texas A & M University System Health Science Center College of Medicine 5.13
10 McMaster University School of Medicine

We generated this list using data collected from our members throughout the US and Canada. The ranking criteria are straightforward. Students are simply asked to rate each school on a scale of 1-10. We do not use any weighting system to manipulate the results.

Although the results make for interesting conversation, the list is completely unscientific and the results are often bizarre. These results are presented simply for entertainment value and should not be used to make career or application decisions.

U Conn is on the worst ten list.. shocked


  #3

Nice list if Location is the most important thing at the time of ranking programs....
Hawaii is at the top...ohhhhhh.. must be nice.... right mph?


  #4

Yes, it is. The best place ever. Vacation every day, even if u r on call.

I would definitely rank it very high if I cant go to Baltimore or New Haven.


  #5

nice, I would round in shorts and sunglasses


  #6

mph, hawaii is very very expensive, and pay is not that high. Honolulu is one of the costliest city to live.

Island has to import everything (almost), a gallon of milk cost six bucks. I was there for a conference and had a chance to talk to few residents. They were happy with the program but few with family had hard time meeting ends. Especially if your spouse is not in hospitality industry.

i wonder, how medical school rank affect residency program rank?

I have not had the pleasure of going there... but I heard the same as the post quoted above... very expensive place!!!
many residents work two jobs to make ends meet!
(when i say residents i mean people who live there... not residents within the hospital)nod

there's a ranking which I can not disclose of course (copyright) from Usnews ...where specialties like internal medicine at diff. schools are ranked by deans, and senior faculty

there are not many differences among school rankings (among top 10s research schools) and internal medicine rankings. These programs usually stay among the top 25 : harvard, hopkins, ucsf, Upenn, duke, U washington, WashU, Michigan, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, UTSW, Vanderbilt, Cornell, Mayo, Alabama, UCLA,UCSD, Pittsburgh, Emory, Mount Sinai, URochester, North carolina.

It changes if best hospitals are considered...and community hospitals like Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic, famous more for subspecialty divisions rank highly

If there was a ranking according to quality of life (income/cost of living?) I'm sure hawaii/honolulu, new york, san francisco, Boston, etc would rank lower...since it is much more expensive to live in those cities...

Read my post again. It's not how good the medical school is. It's the "location" ranking. Generally speaking, university hospital is of the same location as the med school. If u happen to have quite a few university calls, this probably help decide. On the other hand, if u r looking into community ones, this probably is worthless.

Or u can take it for fun grin
