Korea University College of Medicine Ranked as One of the World’s Top 100 Medical Schools
Times Higher Education (THE), a UK-based provider of global higher education data, ranked Korea University College of Medicine 93th in the 2020 World University Rankings by subject: clinical, pre-clinical and health.
The Times Higher Education World University Rankings is one of the two world-renowned global performance tables that judge universities other than the QS World University Rankings based on its performance indicators: teaching, research, citations, international outlook, industry income. Korea University College of Medicine ranked 93th out of 775 medical schools. From 201-250th in 2018 and 151-175th in 2019, it achieved a dramatic improvement to 93rd this year. This proves that Korea University College of Medicine has achieved its core mission: teaching, research, and international outlook of the highest quality.
The 2019 QS World University Rankings also ranked Korea University College of Medicine as one of the top 100 universities, 66th, for the first time in Korea by the subject of Anatomy and Physiology. From 150th in 2017 and 148th in 2018, Korea University College of Medicine ranked 127th this year by the subject of Medicine Related Studies, demonstrating a steep increase.

More than 70 overseas medical students visited Korea University College of Medicine for clinical practicum and in order to promote its standing in the international community, it is engaged in various activities such as successfully hosting last April’s World Conference of the World Federation for Medical Education and an international symposium with medical students from six Asian countries.
