Top Medical Schools in 2014

Read on for an overview of the world’s leading universities for medical teaching and research, broken down by region.

Top medical schools in the US

The US dominates international university tables overall, and medicine is no exception. Harvard University maintains its strong position at the top of the table, and is joined by an additional five US universities within the top 10: Stanford University (4th), University of California, Los Angeles (5th), Johns Hopkins University (6th), Yale University (7th) and University of California, San Francisco (9th). A further 14 US universities are ranked within the world’s top 50 for medicine.

Most of these leading medical schools in the US are based at large, comprehensive universities – a mixture of private and public – which rank well across a wide selection of subject areas. Notable specialist institutions highlighted by the ranking include Minnesota’s Mayo Medical School; Texas’ Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center; New York’s Rockefeller University and Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

Top medical schools in the UK

While medical schools in the US account for six of the top-10 places, the remaining four spots go to medical schools in the UK. The Universities of Oxford and Cambridge are ranked 2nd and 3rd in the world for their medical programs and research, while the UK capital’s two leading institutions – UCL and Imperial College London – come 8th and 10th. A further 21 UK universities are featured in the medical ranking, most of them comprehensive universities with a strong overall international position, with the notable exception of the specialist London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.

Top medical schools in Canada

Canadian universities also have a good presence in the medical ranking, accounting for 11 of the top 200 medical departments and four top-50 entries. The top medical schools in Canada are all based at major universities, corresponding broadly to the overall ranking of the country’s best universities, with the University of Toronto, McGill University and the University of British Columbia (UBC) leading the way. Canadian universities which rank particularly well for medicine compared to their overall global rank include McMaster University (50th for medicine; 140th overall) and the University of Calgary (top 100 for medicine; 201st overall).

Top medical schools in Europe

Beyond the US and the UK, Germany boasts more of the world’s leading medical departments than any other country; a total of 19 German institutions are ranked in the global top 200 for medicine. Of these, the highest entries are Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, ranked 31st and 44= respectively.
