Top medical schools in the United States, as determined by the Ranker community. Starting a career in medicine as a doctor, surgeon, nurse or hospital administrator begins with a solid education and that's exactly what the best medical schools in the world provide for thousands of students each year. While U.S. News and World Report ranks Harvard University as their number one medical school, this list ranks the best medical schools by votes. Add which colleges and universities you think offer the best medical programs by adding your list below!

Just as the same colleges routinely rank above and beyond others in general college rankings and for having the best law schools, those universities also come in atop the list of the best medical schools. Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins University come in as just a few of the best medical schools in the United States.

What are the best medical schools in the US? For everyone who grew up wanting nothing more than to be that top doctor or surgeon, these schools (and tens of thousands of dollars for tuition) can help you make that dream come true.
