U.S. News and World Report has named the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine the top osteopathic medical school for primary care among medical schools across the country.

“It’s no surprise that UNE’s medical school is being recognized for its leadership in primary care,” said UNE President James Herbert. “As the top provider of physicians for the state of Maine, we take great pride in preparing our medical students for careers in the specialties most needed in Maine, northern New England and beyond, such as primary care, geriatrics and general internal medicine.”

U.S. News ranked eight osteopathic medical schools in its annual list of best medical schools for primary care. The rankings are determined using the number of students entering primary care specialties upon graduation, as well as surveys from medical schools, test scores and average GPA.

“More than sixty percent of our graduates practice in primary care,” said UNE COM Dean Jane Carreiro, D.O. “We train doctors who care for the whole patient, work to promote overall health and work well in teams with other health professionals. These are skills that lend themselves perfectly to primary care practice, and I am thrilled UNE COM is gaining a national reputation as a provider of exceptional primary care doctors.”
