EduMed offers a free, online resource for students seeking information on top healthcare programs, including information on scholarships, financial aid, and other helpful program information for top healthcare programs in nursing, healthcare administration, public health, and other key disciplines.

EduMed’s yearly analysis includes research and analysis of more than 7,700 accredited schools using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and using information from the schools themselves. An analysis performed by EduMed’s data science team then ranks each qualifying schools within their healthcare discipline. The primary data points analyzed include:

  • Academic counseling services

  • Tuition
  • Percent of students receiving school-based financial aid
  • Amount of school-based aid per student
