### Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health Ranks Third Nationally

The Rollins School of Public Health has achieved a ranking of No. 3 among all accredited schools and programs of public health in the United States, as announced today. This recognition is based on reputation and underscores the school’s ongoing commitment to excellence in research, education, and academic standards.

M. Daniele Fallin, PhD, the dean of the Rollins School of Public Health, expressed gratitude for the acknowledgment from peers and emphasized the significance of being acknowledged alongside other esteemed programs, particularly given the current critical importance of public health. While proud of this achievement, Fallin highlighted that rankings serve as just one measure of success. The school’s strengths extend beyond rankings to encompass a robust research funding portfolio, a distinguished faculty, strong partnerships with national and local entities, and a diverse and talented community.

Having consistently ranked in the top 10 for two decades, with its most recent position at No. 4, Rollins also excelled in individual program rankings this year. Specifically, the programs in environmental health science, social behavior, epidemiology, health policy and management, and biostatistics all secured top positions.

In addition to its ranking success, the school celebrated various recent milestones, including being ranked No. 5 nationally for National Institutes of Health funding, with over \(62 million received in fiscal year 2023. The total research funding for the school in the same fiscal year amounted to \)179 million. Furthermore, the appointment of Stephen Patrick as the new chair of the Department of Health Policy and Management effective June 1 was announced. The school has also made significant progress in implementing its strategic plan, with updates on the six outlined goals set to be shared later this month.
