Ranking of Australian/New Zealand Medical and Dental Schools



The reputation and prestige of the University is not as important in Australia in general, as in the USA. In the USA there is a hierarchy of universities with Ivy League Universities such as Harvard and Yale, being miles ahead of the mediocre universities. In Australia however, there is little standard deviation in terms of quality, standard and prestige of the 40 or so universities.

Particularly in the case of Medicine and such Health Science courses, it matters very little which university you go to in Australia. If you are aiming to obtain a degree in engineering, commerce or law, the prestige of the university may matter to some extent (not as much as in the US even in these disciplines).

If you are a doctor however, what patients really care about are your diagnostic skills, bedside manner and so on, not which university you went to. In fact, most patients would not even know which university their doctors graduated from.

However, for those who are interested in having an idea of the university rankings, it is provided below. Obviously depending on the criteria you use, the ranking is going to vary, and therefore it is subjective to some extent.

What is given below takes into account the factors such as: meritocracy in selection; difficulty of getting in; graduate outcomes such as: employer satisfaction of graduates, ability of graduates to be able to get into the specialty that they want, graduate salaries etc. Other rankings which take into account the research output of the university are irrelevant to most people in practical terms and therefore this has not been considered here.

The new medical school (Curtin University) has not yet been ranked since we do not have enough data.
