The veterinary school in 2011 ranked No. 2 in the nation, the last time the publication evaluated veterinary programs.
The veterinary school operates a teaching hospital at UC Davis and satellite clinics in San Diego and Tulare. The school cares for more than 48,000 animal patients each year and teaches more than 500 veterinary students in addition to residents and graduate students.
UC Davis School of Medicine’s primary care program ranked 19th nationally.
Other UC Davis performers included the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing for its master’s-degree nursing programs (No. 43); the School of Law (No. 31); the School of Education (No. 38); the College of Engineering (No. 33); and the Graduate School of Management (No. 48).
Though U.S. News rankings have drawn criticism, they are followed closely each year by academics and professionals, particularly in fields like management and law where employers value institutional prestige.
