The top five colleges included Emory University School of Medicine, University of Massachusetts Medical School, UI Carver College of Medicine, Boston University School of Medicine, and University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Medicine.

“The success of our program is a tribute to the faculty and staff who have worked so hard to make our program work and to everyone who participates by updating their disclosures,” said Deborah Thoman, the UI assistant vice president for compliance and accreditation, in a press release. “We essentially have a 100 percent compliance rate, so it’s very clear that everyone here is committed to openness and transparency.”
