Recent findings from the Academic Analytics 2010 Database (AAD 2010) show that the Comparative Biomedical Sciences graduate program at the UW School of Veterinary Medicine is a top-ranked program. Both locally and on the national level, the program received top scores.
Academic Analytics gathers and aggregates metrics on the research productivity of nearly 400 institutions nationally into a comparative database. AAD 2010 includes data in categories such as grant dollars earned, number of books or articles published by faculty, and number of faculty with awards or honors. The goal is to provide clear, unbiased information that each graduate program can use for easy comparison and to evaluate their own performance by observing strengths and areas for improvement in the individual categories.
This graphic depicts the strengths of the Comparative Biomedical Sciences graduate program at the UW School of Veterinary Medicine, according to metrics gathered by Academic Analytics. The inner, dotted circle marks the 50th percentile for the performance of all graduate programs in the 26 categories listed around the perimeter. The colored “petals” depict the Comparative Biomedical Sciences program’s performance.
Based on this information, the Comparative Biomedical Sciences graduate program received the top score of all the programs on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Nationally, the program also excelled, ranking among the leading veterinary graduate programs in the country.
