The University of Washington’s graduate and professional degree programs were widely recognized as among the best in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2023 Best Graduate School rankings released late Monday.
Dozens of UW schools and departments placed prominently in the 2023 rankings — 41 placed in the top 10, and more than 100 in the top 35.
Leading the nation, the UW School of Medicine ranked No. 1 for both primary care education and for family medicine training. Other notable achievements in the top 10 are nursing, education, social work, computer science, business, public health and public affairs.
“Meeting the challenges facing our world will require deep expertise, innovation and discovery,” UW President Ana Mari Cauce said. “I am proud to see the UW’s outstanding researchers, educators and healthcare providers recognized for all that they do to address these challenges and train the next generation of professionals and Ph.D.s whose work will help to create a healthier, more equitable and more sustainable world.”
In addition to its No. 1 position in primary care education and family medicine training, the UW School of Medicine also placed No. 2 among public institutions for research. The school maintains its position as second in the nation in federal grant funding with $966 million of federal grants in 2020.
The UW School of Nursing received the No. 1 overall ranking for a public school offering a doctor of nursing practice program, and the No. 2 position overall. The nursing schools at UW Bothell and UW Tacoma collectively tied for No. 1 among public schools that offer a master’s degree, and placed No. 5 overall.
The UW School of Social Work tied for No. 2 in the nation alongside University of Chicago and Washington University in St. Louis. This is the highest ranking the school has received since the initiation of this national survey.
Ranked second among public institutions and third overall, the UW’s Evans School of Public Policy & Governance has maintained its top-10 ranking for the sixth consecutive year.
