The Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research (BRIMR.ORG) provides ranking tables of NIH Funding to US Medical Schools and Principal Investigators and includes direct plus indirect costs but excludes R & D contracts.
The website reports that Stanford is the number 2 ranked anesthesia department in country for NIH funding ($7,887,305) for 2013! as per http://www.brimr.org/NIH_Awards/2013/NIH_Awards_2013.htm
This is up from number 4 ranking in 2012. Congratulations.
I believe that how great the education is in a department depends on how great the clinical care is and how great the scholarship and research is in an anesthesia department.
