The medical school rankings are always a point of debate among medical schools and medical students. No single method for determining these rankings works perfectly, and every institution feels it should be ranked higher. Having two lists, research and primary care, deals with this problem a little, but it also points out where weaknesses reside.

According to our proprietary ranking tool (accessed above), the top 10 medical schools for 2012 are as follows: 

  1. Johns Hopkins University
  2. Washington University in St. Louis
  3. Stanford University
  4. Baylor College of Medicine
  5. Harvard University
  6. University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center--Dallas
  7. University of California--San Diego
  8. University of Pennsylvania
  9. Yale University
  10. Duke University
