Pitt Psychiatry Named U.S. News & World Report Top Psychiatry Program

We are pleased to report that Pitt Psychiatry has been named a 2021 U.S. News & World Report Best Psychiatry Program, ranked 6th among medical schools in the nation. 

According to U.S. News, the organization “surveyed 191 medical and osteopathic schools accredited in 2020 either by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education – known as the LCME – or the American Osteopathic Association. This data collection plus results from peer assessment surveys were used to calculate the overall rankings and eight medical field specialty rankings and to populate each medical school's profile in the directory.”

Additionally, the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine is also a Best Medical School: Research, ranked at #13 nationwide. 

“This superb ranking reflects the outstanding talents of our teaching faculty and residents, and their dedication to providing the highest quality of education in psychiatry to Pitt medical students,” said David Lewis, MD (Chair, Department of Psychiatry). “The effectiveness of their efforts is also evident from the increasing number of Pitt medical students who choose psychiatry for residency training. We are very fortunate to have Drs. Gina Perez, Jody Glance and Neeta Shenai as outstanding leaders in medical student education.”
