Below is the list of best universities in Brazil ranked based on their research performance in Medicine. A graph of 5.85M citations received by 335K academic papers made by 122 universities in Brazil 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.
