Notes from U.S. News:

  • Unranked schools, which did not meet certain criteria required by U.S. News to be numerically ranked, were not included in this report.
  • *RNP indicates a school that is ranked in the bottom quarter of all rank-eligible medical and osteopathic programs. U.S. News calculated a rank for those schools, but elected not to print it.
