Best Medical Schools In The World For 2020
Methodology: CEOWORLD magazine’s best medical schools in the world for 2020 is based on 7 major indicators of quality, overall Score (100%) is the sum of:
1) Academic reputation
2) Admission Eligibility
4) Global reputation and influence
5) Annual tuition and fees
6) Research performance
7) Student satisfaction
We believe rankings are one useful tool among many for evaluating the merits of a school of degree program, but should not be relied upon exclusively or take the place of personal judgment or consultation with educational experts. Data for these indicators were collected from publicly available sources, medical school’s website, as well as our own editorial judgement. Information considered includes rankings and awards from reputable national and international publications, student-to-professor ratio, admissions acceptance rate, retention and graduation rates, tuition cost, financial aid availability, and accreditation. Students, industry professionals, and academicians were asked to rate medical schools on a scale of 1 “marginal” to 100 “outstanding” or “don’t know.”
