Best Medical Schools in Europe

Below is the list of best universities in Europe ranked based on their research performance in Medicine. A graph of 110M citations received by 3.06M academic papers made by 1,018 universities in Europe was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish between 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 the university website.
