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.

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.
