Medical School Rankings

We think it is important to state that, like all other rankings, these are inherently subjective. Furthermore, the 25 schools we have listed here (not unintentionally in alphabetical order) may not be the top 25 schools for you given your needs and interests.
Does it Matter Where You Go for Medical School?
This answer is both yes and no. No, it does not matter in the sense that you will still be a licensed M.D. Yes, it does matter as the more prestigious the school, the better your chances of getting a top-choice residency and having a better network to utilize for your post medical school endeavors. Johns Hopkins points out that over 90% of their graduates get one of their top 3 residency choices on Match Day. Duke University reports that 82% of their graduates landed one of their top 3 residency choices. These are impressive statistics indeed! (Even before considering their graduates are more likely to target very competitive residencies in specialty fields.)
