lol - obviously you havent lived in other countries.Originally posted by lola
it's a little ridiculous that so many people are assuming the u.s. is better. sure, the u.s. medical education system has a great reputation. however, i'm sure many countries have excellent medical schools as well. this is what's wrong with america today -- americans thinking the u.s. is superior to other countries.
HAHAHA, well even still....she has to move out of her country to come to the USAOriginally posted by Scooby Doo
Check the dude's location next time dimwit!
What about the Sorbonne ? They are regarded as the most prestigious University of Europe. (and from Candide's list, Fr had about 1/3 of the top Universities of the world).Originally posted by mrsdawes
Can someone offer the ranking of world medical schools to me, Thank you very much!
wow, i have never heard of any indian family suggesting their kid to india for med school if a u.s. school didn't work out. i know mine wouldn't.Originally posted by gold&black2005
All I know is that in many Asian families that have pre-med children, the "med school rankings" go 1) harvard 2) JHU 3) any other US med school 4) Any med school in India or Pakistan 5) somewhere in central/south america (Ross, SGU, Universidad Autonomia de Guadalajara). You don't really hear much about McGill, Flinders, any Euro med school unless the family lives in Canada.
Useless info, but still...
Right.... and who's doing the ranking? Let me guess.... Canada?Originally posted by SocialistMD
Do a search. It has been discussed before. The US schools actually ranked a lot lower than many of you might imagine.
I heard from a Canadian PhD that Canadian med schools are nothing in comparison to any US schools.Originally posted by DW
I heard McGill in Canada is supposed to be on par with a top 25 U.S. Any credence to that statement?

Hong Kong Medical University and Shanghai School of Medicine are quite good too. I believe they are the #1 and #2 in the country. However, their basketball system is poor. Therefore, I am immigrating here to play for the NBA.
I had lived in Hong Kong for more than 15 years, i haven't heard a school called Hong Kong medical university. There are only 2 universities offer medical education in HK, the University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The qulifications are MBBS and MBChB respectively. And both of the courses are 5-year. The University has applied the PBL learning.Originally posted by kaos
Chill out! I'm laughing about the NBA thing, not the med schools! And anyway, the original post isn't mine.Originally posted by mrsdawes

Please show me this rankingOriginally posted by poloace
i believe that the U.S. top 50 schools are great, but i think some of the best schools are in england and france. they consistently rank as top in physician training in the world. i don't remember which schools exactly- but i'll find out.
If there are tons of countries on par/better than the US, please name one, it shouldnt be hard for you thenOriginally posted by lola
there are loads of countries on par with the u.s.!
while the u.s. has a lot of great things going for it, plenty of other countries have different great things going for them. you can't really say one is superior to another unless there are major human rights violations going on in a country or something.
That greatly depends on what part of America you are talking about. Looking at national averages and national totals is misleading that way. There are plenty of perfectly safe (or nearly so) places to raise a family.Originally posted by lola
not that violent crime doesn't exist in other countries, but it is much worse in america than in many other countries.
That's so not true! THe USA is PER CAPITA (that's PER PERSON) far more productive than almost all other countries... maybe switzerland or the netherlands has higher (I'm not exactly sure). As far as major accomplishments go... like the internet and space and air travel... the USA is still the undisputed champ.Originally posted by lola
plus we have a WHOLE lot more people in this country than in most. of course we're going to get more done!
