Institutional Goals Ranking Report, 1993.
Williams, Donna J.; Krakower, Jack
Missions of medical schools include teaching, research, and patient care, but these missions can vary greatly in importance between schools. Schools may also pursue more specific goals in addition to the traditional ones. Additional goals may include production of primary care physicians, recruitment of underrepresented minorities into the medical profession, production of practicing physicians for the state or region, or production of academic physicians. These variances make single-criterion ranking of medical schools difficult and of limited utility. This report provides objective data for comparing schools on various measures, each of which may reflect an important medical school goal for some institutions. The measures included in the current report are contained in five tables which detail: (1) percent of graduates entering primary care specialties (family practice, general pediatrics, and general internal medicine); (2) percent of graduates accepting in-state residencies; (3) percent of graduates who become medical school faculty; (4) percent of graduates who are members of underrepresented minorities; and (5) total federal research grants and contracts.
