Each year, The Times Higher Education (THE) publishes their ranking of the “World’s Best Small Universities.” This year, OHSU is listed at #7. THE categorizes an institution a “small university” if it has enrollment of less than 5,000 across the entire institution. All universities featured in this category must also cover four or more broad subjects.
The list, released on Jan. 25, includes an overview of the top 20 schools in this category. OHSU, which ranks highest among medical schools on the list, boasts a student to faculty ratio of just over one student per staff member, despite a student body of close to 3,000. To highlight the advantages of a small university, OHSU’s overview includes a blog post by first-year School of Nursing student Angelina Pham, in which she discusses her reasons for choosing OHSU and how the small-scale environment has allowed her to develop close-knit relationships with both students and faculty.
CalTech takes the top spot in the ranking. Other health care schools on the top 20 list include Tokyo Medical and Dental University (#12) and National Yang-Ming University (#13).
