Bruce E. Sands, MD, MS and Scott L. Friedman, MD

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai was ranked No. 3 in the world in U.S. News & World Report “Best University for Gastroenterology and Hepatology.” The Seventh Annual U.S. News & World Report “Best Global Universities” rankings were produced to provide insight into how universities compare globally. Since an increasing number of students plan to enroll in universities outside their own country, the Best Global Universities rankings—which focus specifically on schools' academic research and reputation overall and not on their separate undergraduate or graduate programs—can help those applicants accurately compare institutions around the world.

“We are pleased and honored that Mount Sinai has been recognized as one of the top three global institutions of higher learning for gastroenterology and hepatology,” said Bruce E. Sands, MD, MS. “We cherish the rich tradition of gastrointestinal and liver research at Mount Sinai, and have always strived to provide the best care to our patients by advancing the science behind that care. At the same time, we are passionate about training the next generation of leaders in our discipline.”

“We are honored by the recognition of our exceptional programs in gastroenterology and hepatology,” said Scott L. Friedman, MD. “This distinction acknowledges the deep commitment of our hepatology program to cultivating the next generation of leaders through our unique, highly comprehensive training. Our mission has always been to bring excellence to patient care, research, and education. Our program remains at the forefront of our discipline in translating groundbreaking discoveries into new paradigms of care that improve the outcomes and quality of life for our patients.”

The Best Global Universities rankings also provide insight into how U.S. universities—which U.S. News & World Report has been ranking separately for more than 30 years—stand globally. All universities can benchmark themselves against schools in their own country and region, become more visible on the world stage, and find top schools in other countries to consider collaborating with.
