<p>keep in mind that the USNWR, for research uses the $ amount from NIH grants for 25% of the ranking and for primary care, replaces that 25% with % entering primary care residencies. Even though you want to be a hematologist (are you interested in blood banking?) you'll have to enter an internal medicine residency first, thus making you a part of that % entering primary care, despite your intentions to be a very particular type of specialist.</p>
<p>Second, realize that the rankings of medical schools is largely irrelevant. There are only 125 medical schools in the US and they are all GREAT schools, all will provide you with the knowledge, skill set and experiences needed to be a practicing physician in the US (evidenced by the 93% first try pass rate on USMLE Step 1 and the 93% match rate for US Seniors in the Match for residency). </p>
<p>Third, there have been articles, in particular an article in Academic Medicine, which call into question the accuracy of the USNWR rankings and if they really hold any merit at all. The consensus of most in medical education is that those rankings mean next to nothing. </p>
<p>Fourth, as ckmed mentioned, supposed medical school prestige is a different game. One only needs to see that state schools stack up very favorably to private schools, even in the USNWR rankings. When looking at med school rankings Nebraska, Iowa, Baylor, East Carolina, and the University of Washington among others rank above schools whose undergrad institutions supposedly blow those schools listed out of the water. There really is no correlation between undergrad prestige and medical school prestige.</p>
<p>Fifth, is Brown's curriculum structured for primary care? Hard to say - like I said, the fact that you want to go into to hematology, but will first enter an internal medicine residency means you'll be contributing to the % entering primary care statistics wherever you end up for medical school. I'm in the same boat as I know I want to go into some sort of pediatrics specialty, but will first do that peds residency. Do some schools put students in a situation to experience primary care fields more? Sure, my own school is pretty high up on the primary care ratings and gives us exposure to rural family practice or surgery for three weeks during the summer between M1 and M2, and then requires to do an 8-week family practice rotation during third year in a small town. Students are also given the option of doing our 8 weeks of pediatrics away from our medical center campus. Things like that may open some students eyes to family practice or rural medicine and push them towards that field. Other schools substitute family practice with Neurology or emergency med, and thus are less likely to push students towards the primary care field. Not knowing Brown's clerkship requirements, I can't tell you which they lean.</p>
<p>In the end, though you need to keep your mind open to specialties (all med students change their thoughts on residency multiple times), ignore the ratings and if you decide to apply to programs like PLME, that medicine is absolutely what you want to do.</p>
Alpert Medical School
Medical school of Brown University
The Warren Alpert Medical School (formerly known as Brown Medical School, previously known as Brown University School of Medicine) is the medical school of Brown University, located in Providence, Rhode Island. Established in 1811, the school is the third oldest medical school in New England.[a]
Today, the Warren Alpert Medical School is a component of Brown’s Division of Biology and Medicine, which also includes the Program in Biology. Together with the Medical School’s seven affiliated teaching hospitals, the Division attracts over $300 million in external research funding per year.
The fourth most selective medical school in the United States, the Warren Alpert Medical School earned rankings of 35th for primary care education and 38th for research in the 2021 U.S. News & World Report rankings. Alpert was also ranked in the top 20 medical schools in the nation by Business Insider. Graduates of the school are accepted into competitive residency programs and leading medical centers.
Brown University first organized a medical program in 1811, with the appointment of three professors: Solomon Drowne, William Ingalls, and William Bowen. The establishment of the school followed examples set by Brown's New England neighbors, Harvard University and Dartmouth College which had established medical programs in 1782 and 1797, respectively.
After assuming office in 1827, Brown's fourth president, Francis Wayland, called for all faculty to reside on campus. Through a residency policy, Wayland intended to increase the supervision of the student body and improve discipline. In March of 1827, the Corporation of Brown University resolved that, in order to receive a salary, all faculty would be required to reside on the school's campus. Serving as voluntary clinical faculty, the medical school's physicians refused to jeopardize their practices in order to comply with the policy.
In 1827, President Wayland suspended the fledgling medical program, suggesting that medical education might be reinstated at a later date. Between its establishment in 1811 and suspension in 1827, 87 students graduated from the school.
In 1972, the Corporation of Brown University authorized the establishment of a four-year medical program. Known as the Program in Medicine, the program awarded its first degrees to a graduating class of 58 students in 1975. In 1991, the program was renamed the Brown University School of Medicine and in 2000 again renamed Brown Medical School.
Between 1972 and 2011, the school operated from facilities on Brown's College Hill campus, including the Bio–Med Center and Smith-Buonano Hall. In 2006, the school opened the Sidney Frank Hall for Life Sciences, a 168,800-square-foot (15,680 m2) life sciences complex for the Division of Biology and Medicine. Housing both research spaces and administrative offices, the construction of the building marked a significant expansion of the Division's facilities.
In January 2007, entrepreneur Warren Alpert donated $100 million to Brown Medical School, tying Sidney Frank for the largest single monetary contribution ever made to the University. In recognition of the gift, Brown Medical School was renamed to The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The funds contributed to the construction of a new medical education facility, medical student scholarships (through the Warren Alpert Scholars Program), support for biomedical research and faculty recruitment, and new endowed professorships.
In 2016 and 2018 the school received further gifts totaling $27 million and $56 million.
Between 2003 and 2006, the University purchased a number of properties in Providence's Jewelry District to accommodate for the expansion of medical facilities beyond the historic College Hill neighborhood. In August 2011, the University completed the process of renovating a former industrial building at 222 Richmond Street to serve as the school's primary facility. Combined with another renovation project at adjacent 70 Ship Street, the opening of 222 Richmond Street marked the school's relocation from facilities primarily on College Hill to those primarily Downtown.
Admissions and rankings
Brown Alpert Medical School is one of seven Ivy League medical schools and is currently ranked 21st for primary care education and 31st for research by the 2017 U.S. News and World Report rankings. Alpert was ranked in the top 25 medical schools in the U.S. by both Business Insider and by a medical education rankings study conducted by Matthew J. Goldstein and colleagues at Harvard Medical School. One of the most selective medical schools in the United States based on an acceptance rate of 2.7%, Alpert enrolls approximately 144 students per class. In 2016, Alpert received 6,374 completed applications and interviewed 370 applicants for 90 spots open through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). Other routes of entry include the eight-year Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME) and a small number of linkage programs. The 2016 matriculating class had an average GPA of 3.8 and MCAT score of 514.
Students interested in studying at Alpert Medical School may apply through a variety of admissions routes designed to enroll a diverse and highly qualified student body. Approximately 30% of the entering class is composed of students from the 8-year Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME) and special linkage agreement programs. In 2004, the school began to accept premedical students from other colleges and universities via AMCAS through a standard route of admissions. According to the school's website, for the Fall 2016 entering class, Alpert Medical School received 6,374 secondary applications and interviewed 370 candidates through the AMCAS route."
A restructuring of the pre-clinical curriculum was implemented in 2006, with the goal of achieving an integrated, contemporary and flexible medical curriculum. Its design was predicated on the vision that tomorrow's physician must be an IT-savvy lifelong learner who is scientifically and clinically enlightened, familiar with alternative and complementary healing traditions, patient and service-centered, and who understands the economic underpinnings of the US health care system. At the heart of the curriculum redesign are the two-year basic science component (Integrated Medical Sciences I-IV), Doctoring (which focuses on clinical skills and professionalism), and the Scholarly Concentrations Program.
Integrated Medical Sciences I: IMS-I provides students with foundations of cell biology, cell physiology, biochemistry, nutrition, immunology and genetics, all of which are integrated with gross anatomy and microscopic anatomy. IMS-I also includes general pathology in which students are introduced to concepts underlying the mechanisms of disease. This foundation forms the basis for the subsequent systems-based blocks of IMS II through IV.
Brain Sciences, the first module of IMS II, integrates head and neck anatomy with neurobiology, behavior, pathophysiology and neuropharmacology. Microbiology is integrated with infectious diseases and relevant pharmacology and epidemiology. In the final block of IMS-II, Endocrinology, endocrine physiology has been incorporated into the endocrine pathophysiology, pathology and pharmacology content. Integrated Medical Sciences III and IV: Students continue with a systems-based approach in Year II: The course sections are cardiology, nephrology, pulmonology, hematology, gastroenterology, human reproduction, growth, and development, and supporting structures (dermatology, rheumatology, and orthopedics).
Doctoring is a required skills-based course for all first- and second-year medical students designed to teach the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of a competent, ethical, and humane physician. Students spend one half-day a week working alongside a physician-mentor. These sessions allow students to observe and practice clinical skills such as medical interviewing, history-taking, physical diagnosis, and professional conduct.
Scholarly Concentrations Program
The Scholarly Concentrations Program is an elective program through which Alpert Medical School students may elect to pursue a course of study beyond that of the conventional medical education curriculum. Scholarly Concentrations offer students the opportunity to translate personal interests and activities into scholarship. Students who participate in a Scholarly Concentration will undertake rigorous independent scholarship in a cross-disciplinary field of interest related to medicine, public health, engineering, or a bio-medically relevant topic in the sciences, arts, or humanities.
Currently, students may pursue a Scholarly Concentration in the following areas: Advocacy and Activism, Aging, Caring for Underserved Communities, Contemplative Studies, Disaster Medicine, Global Health, Health Policy, Informatics, Integrative Medicine, Medical Education, Medical Ethics, Medical Humanities, Medical Technology and Innovation, Physician as Communicator, and Women's Reproductive Health.
Primary Care-Population Medicine Program
Using seed money from a $1 million Accelerating Change in Medical Education (ACE) grant from the American Medical Association] the Warren Alpert Medical School (AMS) of Brown University developed an MD-ScM program. The Primary Care-Population Medicine (PC-PM) Program is an integrated dual-degree curriculum that focuses on preparing students for a career in medicine while providing training in population medicine. Students concurrently earn both the MD and an ScM in Population Medicine with four-years of curriculum.
Main article: Program in Liberal Medical Education
In 1984, Brown endorsed an eight-year medical program called the Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME). The PLME offers a unique opportunity to join undergraduate and professional studies in medicine in a single eight-year program. By combining the open curriculum concept of Brown (The College) and the competency-based curriculum concept of the Alpert Medical School, the PLME encourages students of medicine to pursue in depth their interests in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences even as they prepare for their careers as physicians.
Prospective students apply to this eight-year program before they begin their undergraduate education. The program is extremely selective, accepting only 90 students each year, and is considered among the most prestigious combined medical programs in the country. In 2020, 2,530 applicants applied for 88 spots, yielding an acceptance rate of approximately 3.47%. According to one source, over 23% of all admitted students to the PLME program enrolled in an admissions prep program. Students earn a Bachelor's degree in their concentration of choice after their fourth year and automatically enter the medical school to pursue their M.D. degree.
Early Identification Program
Since 1976, the Early Identification Program (EIP) was initiated to encourage Rhode Island residents to pursue careers in medicine by recruiting sophomores from Providence College, Rhode Island College and the University of Rhode Island. An EIP was also established with Tougaloo College to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in the medical school.
Brown-Dartmouth Medical Program
From 1981 to 2006, Brown offered a joint program with Dartmouth Medical School called the Brown-Dartmouth Medical Program. Approximately 15 students at Dartmouth Medical School enrolled in the program annually, spending the first two basic medical science years at Dartmouth and the next two years in clinical education at Brown, where they received their M.D. degree. The program was discontinued in the fall of 2006 after their respective deans stated that the institutions desired to move in their own directions.
Combined degree programs leading to the MD/PhD, MD/MPH, MD/MPP, and MD-ScM degrees are currently offered in conjunction with Brown's Graduate School, School of Public Health, and Watson Institute.

Question 2: How will your unique attributes (e.g., cultural or socioeconomic background, lifestyle, work experiences) add to the overall diversity of the Alpert Medical School community? (2000 characters)
This prompt asks for a classic diversity essay, which we give tips on how to tackle in our guide to medical school secondary essays. To make your answer truly shine, try to connect whichever attribute you choose to write about to some aspect of Alpert Medical School, like a specific program or resource.
I grew up in rural New Hampshire on a family-owned dairy farm, a traditional industry in our area. Farming is a hard way of life, but my family has been lucky—our farm, started by my grandparents and currently operated by my mom and dad, is still going strong. Many others have been less fortunate as, over the last thirty years, nearly half the farms in our area closed and the local economy slid into a depression.
As it did in many rural communities, the opioid epidemic found a foothold in my hometown. I first became aware of this during my freshman year of high school when a student in the grade above me died of a fentanyl overdose—a boy I’d gone to school with all my life. Other deaths followed, young and old. Even after moving away for college and becoming the first person in my family to earn a degree higher than an associate’s, news of someone I once knew unexpectedly passing continues to reach me.
There are a few reasons for this. A flailing economy and corrupt pharmaceutical companies deserve some of the blame. But access to addiction treatment and adequate healthcare—especially pain management, which is crucial for manual laborers like farmers—is sorely lacking in my hometown and places like it. I’ve always wanted to be a doctor. Watching this crisis unfold has reinforced my conviction that medicine is how I’ll make a real impact in communities like mine.
I’m therefore drawn to Alpert Medical School’s uniquely strong curriculum on opioid use disorder, plus its groundbreaking partnership with the DEA to allow medical residents to prescribe medication-assisted opioid treatment. I believe my background as someone from a rural, working class community gives me insight on how to treat and empathize with patients from a similar demographic and would add a unique perspective to the AMS community.
What’s working in this response? This applicant mostly focuses on their geographic and socioeconomic background—a rural farming community affected by the opioid epidemic, an underrepresented demographic in top-tier medical schools like Brown. The applicant also mentions that they are essentially a first-generation college student.
But this essay works because it isn’t just about checking certain demographic boxes. The student’s background is woven into a clear mission statement about medicine, and, crucially, into an aspect of Brown that makes them sure this school is right for them.
Question 3: What are your aspirations for your medical practice? Fast-forward to 15 years in the future: where do you imagine yourself?(3000 characters)
In this question, the committee is looking to see that you’ve given your future careful consideration and that you’re passionate about a specialty or area of interest.
If you already know where you’ll be in 15 years, great! If not, the best way to answer this question is to first reflect on your various experiences thus far and how they connect, and then imagine what future that through line leads to. Don’t worry that you’re committing yourself permanently to whatever you choose to write about—medical schools are well aware that people’s interests change over time.
As with the previous question, a great response will also incorporate how a Brown medical education will help you achieve your desired future.
My goal is to become a general internist and to incorporate integrative medicine into a primary care practice. My desire to become a primary care physician dates back to at least my first year of high school and has been consistently reinforced through exposure to the field. For instance, though I’m passionate about science and currently work as a research assistant in a clinical pathology lab here at the University of Michigan, which I love and find intellectually exciting, the experiences I have felt most compelled by have always involved interacting with patients directly. From shadowing a pediatrician back in my hometown as a high school student to volunteering for a free women’s health clinic in Detroit during college, I’ve always known that caring for and building relationships with patients is what I want to do.
I became interested in integrative medicine more recently. Two years ago, after a cycling accident left me in chronic pain, I found a great deal of relief through non-mainstream treatments and practices like acupuncture and yoga. Through the University of Michigan health system, I was lucky to find a great integrative primary care physician who helped me navigate my injury with a thoughtful blend of alternative therapies and conventional medical science (I ultimately had wrist surgery). The approach my doctor took with me resonated deeply with how I want to approach caregiving as a future physician.
Alpert Medical School’s progressive culture and curriculum, particularly the Doctoring course sequence, speaks to the open-minded, patient-centered treatment I want to deliver. In addition, the opportunity to participate in the Scholarly Concentration Program in Integrative Health and Contemplative Practice would be truly exciting for me. I’m especially keen to enter the research track of the concentration in order to contribute to the body of scientific literature surrounding alternative treatments. For these reasons, I believe that Alpert Medical School would be the very best place to train for the career I envision in my future.
This applicant does a great job of painting a picture of their future career and tracing exactly how they arrived at their specific goals. On top of this, they demonstrate that they’re well versed in Brown’s curriculum offerings and are able to point to specific reasons why a Brown medical education will get them where they want to go.
