Top Ten Status in NIH Funding

The Department of Anesthesiology remains in “top ten” status; ranked 10th in the country amongst all anesthesiology departments for NIH funding

 Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research

According to the latest rankings of NIH funding, the University of Maryland School of Medicine Department of Anesthesiology ranked #10 amongst all US Departments of Anesthesiology.

Since 2016, for five years in a row, we have been ranked #11 or higher. Being in the top-10 two years in a row is a great accomplishment, especially in this era of constrained NIH funding. By way of comparison, only 52 Anesthesiology departments have any NIH funding. Our NIH funding is listed in the Blue Ridge report at $7.5M; the median funding for all US Anesthesiology Departments is $2.1M.

Our top-10 ranking represents the hard work of our entire faculty and staff, and is the result of a true team effort. Everyone should take great pride in this success. We take care of the sickest patients in the country, we train terrific anesthesiologists, and we perform research that makes a significant difference to patients here, and elsewhere. These are all reasons why our department is one of the top Anesthesiology programs in the nation.
