World University Ranking
Naturopathic medicine is a system of primary health care practiced by naturopathic physicians for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. It is also considered a comprehensive system of medical care within the world of complementary medicine that incorporates several different modalities.
The practice of naturopathic medicine combines centuries of ancient knowledge of non-toxic natural therapies with current advances in the understanding of health and human systems (Bastyr University Catalog, 1999/2000). Naturopathic physicians are typically trained in a wide range of alternative therapies including herbology, homeopathy, massage, hydrotherapy, physical medicine, behavioral medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, acupuncture, and nutritional therapy, as well as clinical practices such as minor surgery, pharmacology, and obstetrics.
The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the primary professional association for naturopathic physicians, defines naturopathic medicine as a distinct system of primary health care.

Tongji is one of the oldest and most selective, among most prestigious universities in China under the 985 project. It is a double first-class, Class A university of China’s Ministry of Education. Tongji University is especially well known for its excellence.
Tongji University is especially known for its engineering, business and architecture programs. The university has more than 2,803 academicians, including 27 members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. Currently, Tongji University has 29 colleges, 8 affiliated hospitals and 6 affiliated primary and secondary schools.
As a university that had gained a reputation for its research programs, Tongji became one of the first universities that were authorized by China’s state council to establish its graduate school. As one of the leading universities, it was successful in its application for the 211 Program that provided universities with substantial government funds. In 1995, the university became one of those that received joint support from the state education commission and the Shanghai municipal government. In 1996, the university merged with the Shanghai Urban Construction Institute and the Shanghai Institute of Building Materials. The merger was recognized by the state council as the “Tongji Model” in the renovation of the higher institution system in China. In April 2000, the enlarged Tongji University merged again with Shanghai Railway University. Tongji University became a comprehensive university offering a wide range of programs in science, engineering, medicine, arts, law, economics and business administration.
Founded jointly by the Nationalists and the Communists in 1922, the original cause of Shanghai University was to train leaders for the Chinese revolution. It contributed a group of influential people to the cause of China’s liberation and development. The university was suspended in 1927 as a result of the Shanghai Massacre, in which the Nationalists purged all communist-related organizations. In 1983, the Chinese government reopened Shanghai University. And then in 1994, by integrating three other universities, it became the largest institution of higher education administered by Shanghai Municipality. As of 2018, SHU enrolls 19,934 undergraduate students and 16,954 graduate students, including 4,505 international students.
Shanghai University’s annual research funding amounted to US$505.3 million in 2018, making it a research-intensive comprehensive university. It has two undergraduate colleges and five broad academic divisions (Natural Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences, Engineering, Economics and Management, and Fine Arts), containing 29 schools or departments.
Studying at a prestigious university opens the door to many opportunities for academic and professional development but it is important to do so at an institution that truly provides you with everything you need.
The QS World University Rankings are calculated by an organization of over 800 universities worldwide that seeks to rank universities according to six metrics: academic reputation (40%), employer reputation (10%), faculty/student ratio (20%), citation ratio per research staff (20%) and the proportion of international faculty and students (5% each).
Although there are different metrics for selecting the best universities in the world, most of them coincide in the same institutions, although the places in which they place them change depending on the variables used to select them and the weight given to each of these. In general, we can conclude that the best ranked universities are mainly in the United States and the United Kingdom.
