The top 12 schools for radiology training, according to US News and World Report

U.S. News and World Report named the best schools for radiology training on Tuesday, with Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins University’s School of Medicine grabbing the top spot.

Harvard and the University of California, San Francisco, round out the top three in the category, mirroring the same institutions from last year’s list. U.S. News said its 2021 Best Graduate Schools Rankings are based on expert opinions about program excellence, along with data measuring the quality of schools’ faculty, research and students.

In a statement to Radiology Business, Karen Horton, MD, chair of Hopkins’ Department of Radiology, called the designation an “honor.” She attributed their success to the entire department’s willingness to “step up and tackle challenges head-on each and every day,” including the coronavirus outbreak.   

“As we are seeing now in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our clinical teams, trainees, researchers and administrators are all coming together as one team to care for our patients, our community and each other,” she said Wednesday. "I am inspired by my colleagues who continue to rise to the challenges set before us.”
