Our students thrive in a challenging environment fueled by a spirit of camaraderie and our shared resolve to improve care.
Promoting collaboration across scientific and healthcare disciplines, Washington University School of Medicine creates an optimal atmosphere for students preparing to lead the future of health and medicine.
Top-ranked degree programs
Many of our master’s and doctoral programs in medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy and audiology rank among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
Residencies and fellowships
The GME consortium sponsors over 100 training programs at the medical school and our hospital partners accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Video: Nationally ranked hospitals, internationally recognized faculty, significant NIH funding and a diverse patient population are among the reasons Washington University School of Medicine is a top choice for clinical training.
Comprehensive facilities and a world-renowned faculty provide students with a supportive environment to acquire a scientific foundation and develop the skills, attitudes, knowledge and commitments necessary to perform clinical and research activities at the highest level.
“The people at WashU are some of the smartest and most accomplished people I have ever met, yet everyone is so down-to-earth and supportive. If I were to choose again, I wouldn’t choose any other school.”
— Medical student Jenny J.
