List of medical schools in the United States
This list of medical schools in the United States includes major academic institutions that award either the Doctor of Medicine (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degrees, either of which is required to become a physician or a surgeon in the United States. MD-granting medical schools are accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, while DO-granting medical schools are accredited by the American Osteopathic Association Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation. There are currently 141 accredited MD-granting institutions and 35 accredited DO-granting institutions in the United States. Alaska, Delaware, Montana, and Wyoming lack medical schools (Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho participate in a regional campus model with the University of Washington School of Medicine known as WWAMI Medical Education which allows 4 years of medical school to occur in each state). Regional campus models have allowed smaller states to gain access to clinical experiences at larger hospitals that their states lack. Additionally, the regional campus model allows medical students to gain valuable rural experiences which are often lacking with medical schools situated in larger metropolitan areas.
