Question "Good" residency programs

How do I know which University has a good residency program, for example how do I know how IM programs are ranked in the US? Is there a list or a ranking?
I sometimes read or hear of people applying to the "best pediatrics program" etc. So I'm just wondering if there is a website where I can find out which schools have good residency programs in a particular specialty.

Thank you!

visit www.acgme.org and under the menu 'graduate medical education' and go to search for sponsorship programmes. Search under the sponsoring institution and the state you want to look at. The more positions filled in a residency programmes the better it is. You can also google about a particular programme you are interested in based on this data.
