100 Best Medical schools in Germany

Below is the list of best universities in Germany ranked based on their research performance in Medicine. A graph of 24.4M citations received by 666K academic papers made by 114 universities in Germany 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.
