posted on Nov. 12: McMaster ranked as one of Canada’s leading universities


For the seventh time in eight years McMaster has been named Canada's most innovative “medical doctoral” university in Maclean's annual ranking of universities. When all 47 universities in the magazine's three ranking categories are put together, McMaster was named the second most innovative university overall.

In the “medical doctoral” category McMaster is ranked against 15 other Canadian universities, all of which have a medical school and a broad range of doctoral and research programs. (It is not a ranking of the medical school alone.) In this group, McMaster ranked seventh overall.

“McMaster's consistently high ranking in the Maclean's survey clearly demonstrates that our students receive the best possible education,” says president Peter George. “The University always looks to the future and we will continue to develop new programs, increase the number and value of our scholarships and bursaries, and provide more interactive learning opportunities to ensure that McMaster graduates are prepared to build successful lives and careers, and stronger communities.

“Every member of the faculty and staff, and every McMaster student should be proud that they have joined together to build a university that is recognized across the country as one of Canada's leading institutions of higher learning.”

Maclean's complete rankings issues arrives on newstands on Monday, November 13, 2000.
