100 Best Medical schools in the United States

Below is the list of best universities in the United States ranked based on their research performance in Medicine. A graph of 195M citations received by 4.51M academic papers made by 1,086 universities in the United States 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.
