March 11, 2019, Health Management and Policy
The University of Michigan School of Public Health has again been ranked among the top five Best Public Health Schools in the country by U.S. News & World Report. The school is the number two public school on the list of best schools of public health.
U.S. News also released new rankings for the Best Health Care Management Programs, and the Michigan Public Health’s Department of Health Management and Policy is ranked third.
“We are honored that our peers across the country continue to recognize the high quality interdisciplinary research, training and engaged learning offered at Michigan Public Health,” said F. DuBois Bowman, dean of Michigan Public Health. “Our core purpose is to create a healthier, more equitable world for all. Therefore, we are committed to continued growth and improvement as we train future public health leaders and pursue creative solutions to complex public health challenges.”
U.S. News ranks accredited schools of public health and health care management programs every four years. The rankings are based solely on the results of peer assessment surveys sent to deans, other administrators, and faculty at accredited degree programs and schools of public health. Respondents are asked to rate the academic quality of programs on a scale of 1 (marginal) to 5 (outstanding), and the schools with the highest average scores appear in the rankings.
