US News' top medical schools for 8 specialties

As part of its annual best medical schools lists, U.S. News & World Report conducted specialty rankings in anesthesiology, family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, radiology, and surgery. 

The publication released its top 15 medical schools for research on April 11, a preview of the full medical schools rankings released May 11. Rankings are based on a survey of more than 190 medical and osteopathic schools. This data and third-party statistics were then used to determine overall rankings, eight medical field specialty rankings, and four diversity and practice rankings, U.S. News said. 

The specialty rankings are based solely on ratings by medical school deans and senior faculty from surveyed schools. Survey respondents each identified up to 15 schools offering the best programs in each of the eight specialties. Schools or programs receiving at least seven nominations in a specialty area were ranked in descending order based on the number of votes in each specialty. Read more about the methodology here
