The John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) at the University of Hawaiʻi Mānoa has moved up in the 2014 U.S. News and World Report lists of Best U.S. Medical Schools in both primary care and research.

JABSOM’s primary care program is ranked 57, jumping up nine places from 2013 rankings. Research earns the 78 spot, up four places*. The U.S. News and World Report annual rankings of professional school programs are based on both expert opinion and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students, according to the magazine. JABSOMhas consistently ranked in the top 100.

JABSOM also has led the nation for three years in extramural research funding (including gifts and faculty practice income) among land grant universities without a university hospital. In fiscal year 2013, external funding at the school totaled $57 million.

The rankings come at a frenetic time for U.S. medical schools. Friday, March 21, is Match Day, when fourth-year medical students from across the country will be matched into post-MD training slots through the National Resident Matching Program. The match is conducted simultaneously across time zones in the United States. JABSOMcandidates will learn where they have matched in a ceremony which begins at 6 a.m. at the school’s Kakaʻako location.

In residency training, newly minted MDs practice under faculty supervision while honing their skills in a medical specialty or sub-specialty, and working toward board certification and licensure. JABSOM, in partnership with Hawaiʻi Residency Programs, Inc., will be placing residents into its programs. More than 230 physicians are currently training at health centers in Hawaiʻi through the JABSOM residency programs. The new cycle of residency training begins July 1, 2014.

*JABSOM tied in primary care at 57 with Yeshiva University in New York and Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia; and tied in research at 78 with the University of South Florida and the University of Louisville medical schools.
