Top 5 World Universities to Study Medicine
No.1: Harvard University
The oldest and most prestigious of all the US universities, Harvard is considered to have the world’s best medical school. Scoring a faultless 100 per cent for its academic, employer and research reputation, it leads its closest rival by 17 points.
No.2: University of Cambridge
No.3: University of Oxford
Oxford University takes third spot with a score of 77.7 points. In spite of the UK tuition fee hikes, a medicine degree at Oxford still costs almost three times less than it would at the likes of Harvard.
No.4: Stanford University
Stanford is the oldest continuously running medical school in the western United States, with some of the most expensive fees. Students are charged up to £27,000 per annum. In 1968 it was responsible for the first adult human heart transplant in the US.
No.5: Johns Hopkins University
Since its establishment in 1893, John Hopkins school of medicine has been considered the model on which all other US medical schools are built. In the television series House, the fictional anti-hero, Dr Gregory House, played by English actor Hugh Laurie, attended Johns Hopkins University but was expelled for cheating.
