Temple University School of Medicine and Kornberg School of Dentistry students and recent graduates rated their educational experience as among the best in the nation, according to GraduatePrograms.com, an online guide to graduate schools which ranks programs nationwide.

Temple’s medical and dental programs (which are combined in the survey) were ranked 19th in the nation – and the highest among all Pennsylvania-based schools on the list. The ranking is derived from survey responses of current and recent students attending graduate programs across the country, on topics such as academic competitiveness, career support, financial aid, and quality of career-networking opportunities.

Temple University School of Medicine is already ranked as the 6th most popular medical school in the country, according to a recent U.S. News & World Report comparison based on number of applicants, and its high ranking by GraduatePrograms.com is further testimony of the School’s solid reputation for excellence among current and prospective students.
