Nova Southeastern University Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine has been granted accreditation by the Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation of the American Osteopathic Association.
Clarification Note: On March 21, 2018, U.S. News and World Report printed a story titled “10 Med Schools That Lead to Top-Choice Residencies.” In that article, U.S. News and World Report states that every medical school graduate in the Class of 2017 at Nova Southeastern University (“NSU”) matched with their first-choice residency program; this statement is inaccurate. Due to a clerical error in transmission, when completing the U.S. News and World Report survey for the 2019 Best Medical Schools research and primary care rankings, NSU inadvertently included a 100% match rate for all Class of 2017 medical school graduates with their first-choice residency programs. While NSU has identified that 100% of the medical school graduates in the Class of 2017 were matched with a residency program, NSU does not maintain data on the number of graduates that were matched with their first-choice residency programs.
