McMaster University has jumped to 16th in an international ranking of post-secondary institutions offering clinical, pre-clinical and health programs.

The annual world ranking of universities is compiled by Times Higher Education World University Rankings in the U.K. Other Canadian universities in the top 50 for 2011-12 were McGill University (11th), University of Toronto (17th), University of Montreal (47th) and University of Alberta (49th).

McMaster moved up from last year’s ranking at 30th, the largest jump of any institution, said Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. He said there were changes in how the survey was done this year after open consultations with universities in 15 countries but the fundamentals remained the same.

The areas measured in making the ranking include teaching, which shows the learning environment; research volume, income and reputation; citations, which show research influence; industry income which shows innovation; and international outlook in students, staff and research.
