A study published in the August 2011 Archives of Neurology ranks BUSM medical education and neurology residency training programs among the top 20 of 120 U.S. programs examined by the researchers in producing academic neurologists. The analysis assessed the impact of the medical schools and residency training programs on the decision to pursue a career in academic neurology as well as an estimation of the most productive medical schools and residency programs based on the academic productivity of their respective graduates.

BUSM medical education and neurology residency programs ranked 15 and 13 respectively by number of graduates, their rank and h-index that measures an author’s most cited articles and the number of citations each of the articles receive. “I am proud to see that we came within the 15 top spots among 120 US institutions,” said Carlos Kase, MD, professor and chair of the Department of Neurology.

“I am delighted that we made both lists, clearly competing with the best medical schools and residency programs in the country,” said Dean Karen Antman, MD. “Dr. Kase and his department have done a great job to motivate our students and residents.”
