World University Rankings 2022 by subject: clinical and health

The clinical and health subject ranking uses the same trusted and rigorous performance indicators as the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022, but the methodology has been recalibrated to suit the individual fields.

It highlights the universities that are leading across medicine, dentistry and other health subjects.

This year’s table includes 925 universities, up from 856 last year.

The University of Oxford leads the table for the 11th consecutive year, while Tsinghua University makes an impressive jump from 32nd to seventh to achieve China’s first ever rank in the top 10.  The University of Hong Kong features in the top 20 for the first time after moving up eight places from 28th.

UK universities excel in the top 100, with 11 of the country’s 15 universities in the group maintaining or improving their previous ranking positions. The US does not enjoy as much success, as 20 of its 28 universities in the top 100 lose ground on their positions from last year.

Ninety-one universities join the clinical and health ranking for the first time in 2022. India’s JSS Academy of Higher Education and Research is the highest ranked debutant at 93rd.
