U.S. News & World Report announced today their rankings of public health schools and programs. The ranking is done every four years and for the first time included Council on Education for Public Health accredited programs housed outside schools of public health. The rankings are based solely on the results of peer assessment surveys, of which this year’s rankings there was a 40 percent response rate.

In a press release, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Dean, Ellen MacKenzie, PhD’ 79, ScM ’75,  said, “While these rankings bring attention to the School, our ongoing pursuit of solutions to a broad spectrum of health challenges is what truly defines us. Our work is at the frontlines – in laboratories, in the halls of government, in countries and community’s around the world.”

Dean MacKenzie’s letter to the Bloomberg School can be found on the website.
