Today, U.S.News and World Report released its 2017 annual survey of the best graduate schools in the United States, and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA rankings are notable. Our medical school now ranks No. 6 in the nation among best medical schools for primary care – up from No. 7 last year – affirming our standing as a top-10 medical school in primary care. In the overall ranking of the nation's best medical schools for research, the David Geffen School of Medicine ranks No. 14, placing us in the top-15 for research. In addition, we received high marks in other specialty training programs, including No. 6 in Drug/Alcohol Abuse and No. 5 in Geriatrics.
These accomplishments are a tribute to the physicians, scientists, staff and students, as well as our affiliated hospitals and community partners, who help train our graduates. We applaud you for the outstanding job you do to sustain our innovative research programs and in the inspired training you provide for the future generations of physicians and physician-scientists.

We are very pleased to announce that the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA has moved up to No. 9 among medical schools in the U.S. for National Institutes of Health research funding — up from No. 14 in the previous fiscal year. This is a remarkable success, especially during a time when the NIH research budget overall has declined over the past several years.
In FY2015, our school of medicine brought in $291,286,174 in NIH funding. This was more than $26 million over FY2014 — a 10 percent increase — and reflects the determination of our research community, faculty and leaders to invest in this mission that is so central to our role as a leader in academic medicine and healthcare education. We want to recognize the efforts of our UCLA CTSI Grants Submission Unit and many dedicated research groups and individuals across the school.
