Best Medical Schools in Asia

Below is the list of best universities in Asia ranked based on their research performance in Medicine. A graph of 54.6M citations received by 3.43M academic papers made by 2,003 universities in Asia was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.
