UNIversity Research And Technology Service

What We Do

UNIversity Research And Technology Service (uniRATS) provides a searchable and navigable directory of all Academic, Research and Technology units at every accredited medical school in the United States and Canada. Within, we use the word “unit” to mean a department, division, section, center, institute, program, initiative, office, committee, etc. whose mission is focused predominantly on Education, Patient Care, or Research — the three tripartite mission areas of every academic medical center.

How We Do It

Our database is developed entirely from our research of medical school websites. Our processes to identify, capture and deploy data arise exclusively from internally developed protocol. More than 8,000 hours of research and development time were applied to the search, identification and capture of desired navigational pathways, resource URLs, and data elements. Data points are monitored 24/7 to provide the most comprehensive, accurate and relevant set of dynamic data possible.
