In the individual specialties rankings, the Children's nephrology program (No. 7), gastroenterology program (No. 10), Aflac Cancer Center (No. 11) and orthopaedics program (No. 13) all ranked in the top 20.

The 10 pediatric specialties are cancer, cardiology/heart surgery, diabetes & endocrinology, gastroenterology, neonatology, nephrology, neurology & neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.
