This list of Ivy League medical schools outlines the seven universities of the Ivy League that host a medical school. Only one Ivy League university, Princeton University, does not have a medical school. All Ivy League medical schools are located in the Northeast region of the United States and are privately owned and controlled. Only two of the schools, at Dartmouth and Penn, are located adjacent to the undergraduate campuses. The schools at Brown, Columbia, Harvard, and Yale, are located on separate campuses in the same metropolitan area as the university. The Cornell Weill Medical School is located in New York City, far from the main Ithaca campus.
