Methodology: CEOWORLD magazine’s best medical schools in the world for 2021 is based on 7 major indicators of quality, overall Score (100%) is the sum of:

1) Academic reputation

2) Admission Eligibility

3) Specialization

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.”

*However, this is by no means a comprehensive list, while the 100 medical schools above are the “CEOWORLD magazine’s best medical schools in the world for 2021,” there may be many other outstanding schools that offer excellent programs.

* This rankings should not be viewed as the most important aspect when choosing a medical school, and are simply one element to consider.

* Some of the institutions featured in this article are commercial partners of the CEOWORLD magazine.

* The top-ranked medical school receives 100 points.

* The rankings are the result of a rigorous analytical exercise, incorporating multiple data sources, without relying on university data submissions.

* Detailed survey data and information collected directly from 90,000 individuals, across 7 data points.

* Surveys completed by 40,000 students, 48,000 industry professionals, and 2,000 academicians around the world.

*The overall score is numerical scores given to the schools based on students, academicians, and industry professionals — measuring the quality of the school. Overall scores are out of 100.

The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 90,000 respondents is plus or minus 1.2 percentage points. In addition to sampling error, one should bear in mind that as in all survey research, there are possible sources of error—such as coverage, nonresponse and measurement error——that could affect the results.
