This paper published July 7, 2017 by economics professors at Princeton University (seems like some Harvard bias), determined that physicians who studied at “lower-ranked” medical schools prescribe nearly three times as many opioids per year as those who attended “top-tier” institutions.

The finding was first published by the National Bureau of Economic Research

Here is the list of medical schools by “rank”

And here is how all physicians stack up
