Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland was named the No.1 medical research-based medical school in Ohio, according to U.S. News and World Report. The school also ranked one of the leading medical schools in the country at 24.
Rankings are based on statistical criteria and on peer assessments by deans and other leaders at the medical schools.
“All of us at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine – our faculty and staff, our students, our donors and our great affiliated hospitals – are proud of this recognition of our school as an innovator in medical education, a leader in life-saving biomedical research and a force for improving health,” said Dr. Pamela B. Davis, dean of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and the university’s senior vice president for medical affairs in a news release. “We are grateful to the university for the vision and commitment that makes our contributions and our progress possible.”
“Our school has been a pioneer in medical education for 175 years, and we’re just getting started,” Davis said in the news release. “We’re about to take another big leap by moving into a new state-of-the-art Health Education Campus this spring. It will bring together and facilitate collaboration across all our health education schools and will incorporate some of the most advanced technology in the world.”
The Health Education Campus will provide an educational opportunity by collaborating students and faculty from the schools of medicine, nursing and dental program under one roof.
