Depends on whether you are looking for clinical medicine or research.

IN reference to the Johns Hopkins response, it may be an incredibly high ranking medical school but its also infamous for having people that are incredibly egotistical, do not enjoy their lives, and are just plain nasty to one another.

My advice: Do your own research, put down the US News magazine, figure out what kind of clinician you want to be, figure out how YOU want to practice, and find the school that is best for you.

Some may say Johns Hopkins based upon its rankings in the popular magazine, US News and World Report.

- #1 Medical Center in the US for 18 years (US News Best Hospitals). - #1 NIH Grant Receiving Medical School (NIH Website).

- #1 Reputation Score (tied with Harvard Medical School) (US News Best Grad Schools). - Closely affiliated with the #1 School of Public Health and Bioengineering Program.

- Research ranking misleadingly a notch below HMS because of the cumulative funding of all of Harvard's hospitals (Mass General is the #5 hospital, Brigham and Women's the #8 hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess not ranked), which are each individually significantly inferior to JHU both clinically and academically. - Modern American medicine, and the threefold mission of research, education, and patient care were born at Johns Hopkins, as was the modern residency training system. Much of modern medical culture like "rounding" comes from Johns Hopkins (originally from the central rounded area beneath the Billings Dome). As Harvard's Mass General was nicknamed "Man's Greatest Hospital" by a Beth Israel (Harvard) intern in the 70's in a book prior to actual hospital scrutiny by US News, Johns Hopkins was so too named "God's Hospital."

- More Nobel Prize products in Physiology and Medicine than any other medical institution including Harvard despite having roughly 1/3 the faculty historically. - Birthplace of "modern" American Medicine (Osler), Surgery (Halsted), OB/GYN (Kelly), Pathology (Welch) (see The Four Doctors), and Pediatrics, as well as multiple subspecialties including CT surgery (a derivative of the Blalock blue-baby operations), Urology and Neurosurgery (to name a few).

- There is no more iconic hospital image in the world than that of the Johns Hopkins Billings Building. - Foreign diplomats and royalty flock to Johns Hopkins for treatment. Johns Hopkins Medical International network is the largest and most well-known and well-respected of its kind across the globe.

- In summary, there is no more gifted collection of clinicians and researchers on earth, and this is one of the few institutions well-known to be even better than Harvard for a given field.
