Ads to tout UNMC's U.S.News ranking in primary careUNMC will advertise its No. 7 U.S. News & World Report primary care ranking in several local and national publications over the coming week and months.
Traditionally, primary care has been associated with family physicians, general internal medicine, general pediatricians and general gynecologists, but has expanded over several years -- and will continue to do so with health care reform -- to include pharmacists, allied health workers, public health officials, high-level nurses and others professions.
"The entire campus community should rightfully take ownership of this ranking," Fry said.
In addition to the primary care ranking, UNMC also ranked:
- 66th in research;
- 15th in rural medicine;
- 16th for the School of Allied Health Professions' physician assistant program; and
- 36th for the College of Nursing's master's degree program.
