Members don't see this ad.
in your humble opinions, what schools would you say have a good reputation for primary care? which ones emphasize primary care over research? i have found this harder to find out than expected.

U. of Washington in Seattle is ranked #1. Check USNews and World Report medical education website for the complete rankings.

Few will deny that U of Washington is number one for primary care. It has exceptional opportunities for training at rural sites. The unfortunate thing is that it accepts few students from other than Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho.

ECU has often come up #1 in family practice, I believe [subset of primary care].

U of Washington in Seattle. They are the only med school in the Northwest and serve most of those states. They have been ranked #1 in primary care. They have tons of programs for med students and pre-meds alike to encourage practice in primary care.

yes, you are right.. but this does not take away from the fact that OHSU is #2 overall for primary care.
