Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to share the news that the UCSF schools of medicine, nursing, and pharmacy received top rankings nationally in this year’s U.S. News & World Report survey of best graduate schools, with all ranked in the top three schools in the nation—positions they have held for many years. Graduate schools of dentistry are not ranked by the magazine.

It is a testament to the vision and dedication of our faculty, staff, and administrators, as well as the leadership of our Deans, that our schools continue to lead in their fields. The aim of each is to foster an environment that cultivates the next generation of compassionate, highly trained health care providers and researchers to advance patient care and discovery.

We can be very proud.
