UAB Graduate Programs Ranked among Nation's best


 

Master's in Health Administration Ranked No. 1

U.S. News & World Report graduate school rankings once again showcase the strength of graduate and professional programs at UAB.

UAB programs in the schools of Health Professions, Nursing, Medicine, Engineering, Education and Public Health and the College of Arts and Sciences are highly ranked in the 2020 U.S. News Best Graduate School Rankings.

One UAB program, the Master's in Health Administration in the School of Health Professions, received the No. 1 ranking as best in the country.

"Attaining the most prominent position from the most-respected ranking publication is a result of 50 years of dedication from our faculty, staff and partners and 50 years of success from our students and alumni," said Harold Jones, PhD, dean of the School of Health Professions.

The UAB School of Nursing boasts five programs ranked in the top 10 in the nation, and three others in the top 20. Two programs hold the No. 6 spot: Nursing Administration and Clinical Nurse Leader. Nurse Practitioner: Pediatric Primary Care is No. 8, while Nurse Practitioner: Family is No. 9. Adult Gerontology: Acute Care holds the No. 10 position.

The program in Adult Gerontology: Primary Care is ranked No. 12, Doctor of Nursing comes in at No. 16, and Master's in Nursing holds the No. 18 spot.

"We are thrilled that, of the eight graduate specialties ranked by U.S. News & World Report, the UAB School of Nursing has five in the top 10 and one in the top 20," said Doreen Harper, PhD, RN, FAAN, dean and Fay B. Ireland Endowed Chair. "Excellence in nursing also is measured by the care we provide patients, especially those in underserved areas; the leadership role we play in the translation of novel and cost-effective care models; and the development of nurse leaders who are helping forge creative change to advance health."

The School of Medicine moved two spots up in both the research and primary care categories, with a ranking of No. 30 in Medical Schools: Research and No. 35 in Medical Schools: Primary Care. The Department of Anesthesiology is ranked No. 20. Two programs, internal medicine and obstetrics/gynecology, are ranked No. 22. Surgery is ranked No. 23.

"It is gratifying to be recognized by U.S. News & World Report for our research and clinical expertise," said Selwyn Vickers, MD, senior vice president and dean of the medical school. "We've also seen impressive gains in other metrics, such as NIH funding."
