Times Higher Education ranking places U of T Medicine sixth globally for clinical, preclinical and health program.

The University of Toronto is ranked sixth in the world for clinical, preclinical and health programs, according to the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) subject rankings.

The ranking is the highest-ever for the University in clinical, preclinical and health programs, of 775 top universities in the world. It’s a reflection of the University’s growing stature, having ranked 13th in 2019 and 19th in 2018.

“We are delighted that the University of Toronto is receiving global attention for the excellence of its medicine and other clinical programs. It confirms what many of us have long known – that we’re among the top institutions in the world,” says Professor Trevor Young, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Vice-Provost, Relations with Health Care Institutions.

“This outstanding result is due to momentous work by our faculty, trainees and staff, and the incredible support of our community and full affiliates, including the Toronto Academic Health Science Network (TAHSN). It also reflects the Toronto Advantage, which shows how for nearly a century, U of T has been the source of some amazing advances in health research,” he says.

The rankings by Times Higher Education are based on five main categories: research paper citations, teaching, research, international outlook and industry income. “These rankings illustrate the power of institutional collaboration and teamwork,” says Dr. Gary Newton, President and CEO of Sinai Health System and Chair of TAHSN. “They also highlight the continued academic mandate of this network and the benefit it brings to our entire city and country. This will help us attract health practitioners and scholars from across the world who want to participate in the most leading-edge research and care.”

The rankings come on the heels of another strong showing by U of T in Times Higher Education overall ranking released in September, which placed the University first in Canada and 18th worldwide.

Next year, U of T will host the Times Higher Education’s World Academic Summit.
