TCOM maintains top 50 ranking in Primary Care by US News & World Report

March 12, 2013

For the 11th consecutive year, US News & World Report ranked the UNT Health Science Center’s Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine among the top 50 of all medical schools nationally for primary care. TCOM ranked 31st, higher than its 35th ranking last year, and tied with Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, Vanderbilt University, UT Southwestern Medical Center and University of Missouri.

Of the schools ranked, TCOM produces the nation’s second greatest percentage of graduates entering primary care, and the most in Texas.

In addition, TCOM’s Rural Medicine program ranked 15th, and Family Medicine ranked 17th.

“This wonderful recognition acknowledges our long-term commitment to training and innovation in primary care,” said UNT Health Science Center Interim President Michael Williams, DO (’81). “It’s also gratifying to be honored for our strength in rural and family medicine. We are proud of our hardworking students, faculty and staff for their dedication to excellence on behalf of their current and future patients.”

The complete ranking results will be included in the magazine’s Best Graduate Schools 2014 guidebook, to be available on April 9.
