The following is a statement from UMass President Jack M. Wilson on UMass Medical School's 2009 ranking as seventh in primary care among the nation's 129 fully accredited medical schools and 25 schools of osteopathic medicine by weekly news magazine U.S. News & World Report.

"Once again, the University of Massachusetts Medical School is being recognized as a national leader in the area of primary care medical education, which is reflective of the medical school's ethos of service and academic excellence.

"In addition, the Medical School is ascending to new heights in the research rankings, reflecting the school's great contributions and successes in the areas of RNA biology, stem cell biology, gene therapy, diabetes and cancer research. In a larger sense, these rankings illustrate what many of us have known for a long time- that the University of Massachusetts Medical School provides education, research and service that is of inestimable value to the commonwealth and its citizens."
