SOM Dean Garland Anderson sent a message to faculty and leadership today that is a pleasure to share. The 2007 NIH rankings are out, and the UTMB School of Medicine had four departments listed in the top 10: Anesthesiology (10), Biochemistry (10), Obstetrics, Gynecology (3) and Pathology (6). There were three departments in the top 20: Neuroscience (13), Otolaryngology (18) and Surgery (15).
It gets better. The rankings do not include contract awards, which could positively impact the ranking of these and other UTMB departments, and may well lead to more good news in the future. Numbers are easy to present; behind them is a lot of hard work by many talented people at all ranks. Congratulations to you all.
