TWO UT COLLEGES RANKED IN TOP TEN OF 'AMERICA'S BEST GRADUATE SCHOOLS' BY U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT

 MEMPHIS, Tenn., March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Tennessee's, Memphis Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy have been named among the top ten in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report's March 22, 1993 issue "America's Best Graduate Schools."
 UT was one of only two institutions nationally to have its Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy named in the rankings by the publication.
 UT's College of Medicine, according to the publication, ranked seventh in the rating category "Comprehensive Schools: Top-scoring schools whose chief mission is training primary-care doctors."
 UT's College of Pharmacy, according to U.S. News, ranked eighth among Colleges of Pharmacy offering doctorate degrees.
 "These honors are a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our faculty and recognizes their excellence in fulfilling our teaching mission. The rankings are especially significant because they come from our peers at other institutions who work directly with our graduates. This is something the people of Memphis and the State of Tennessee can take pride in because it means the products of their Colleges of Pharmacy and Medicine are nationally recognized," said Bill Rice, acting chancellor, UT Memphis.
 The publication notified the institution of their ranking today and followed it with a national announcement in Washington at 12:00 Noon E.T.
 Pharmacy rankings were determined by reputation through questionnaires sent to deans and faculty at accredited schools in each discipline that awarded doctor of pharmacy degrees. "Respondents ... were asked to rate each school according to its reputation for scholarship, its curriculum and the quality of faculty and graduate students," according to a statement released by U.S. News.
 For ranking purposes, the publication divided 126 medical schools into two categories, those oriented toward research and those oriented toward training primary-care physicians.
 "The 66 primary-care schools were ranked using two equally weighted reputational surveys of deans and residency directors," according to the statement.
