Montreal’s McGill University has retained its title as the country’s “Top Medical Doctoral University” in Maclean’s national university rankings.
Universities in that category have significant research operations as well as medical schools. They tend to be among the largest post-secondary institutions in Canada.
“McGill is the most internationally diverse medical doctoral university in Canada, with 27 per cent of the student body coming from 140 different countries,” Maclean’s noted in its explanation of the ranking.
In its commendation, the magazine also noted that Montreal was recently named the world’s best city for students by global higher education analysts QS Quacquarelli Symonds.
