In the ranking of THE WUR 2024 by Subject, the Medical University of Wroclaw achieved the best result in Poland in the Clinical and Health category. In the overall ranking, UMW was placed in the 401-500 range, in which only two Polish universities were placed. Thus, the Wroclaw medical university ex aequo with Jagiellonian University took the first place among all universities in Poland.
In the Clinical and Health (medical and health sciences) sciences category, 1,059 universities from all over the world were assessed and 12 universities from Poland were ranked, including eight medical universities. UMW maintained last year’s leading position, again taking first place, ahead of the Medical University of Białystok, which came second and the Medical University of Gdańsk, which is in third place.
Five indicators are considered in the ranking evaluation: education (Teaching), research environment (Research Environment), research quality (Research Quality), cooperation with business (Industry) and internationalization (International Outlook). Each of them had a different percentage of the university’s final grade.
The Medical University of Wroclaw informed, that the most significant of these, having the greatest impact on the ranking position, was Research Quality. In this respect, UMW ranked first among all universities in Poland.
– This is another success for the team of many people working at our university, – says the rector of the Medical University of Wroclaw, Prof. Piotr Ponikowski. – THE WUR ranking evaluates universities based on objective, measurable indicators and is one of the most prestigious lists of its kind in the world.
The Rector of the Medical University of Wroclaw also pointed out that they are striving for the status of a research University.

The ranking of THE WUR 2024 by Subject shows that in this respect we are the best in the country, taking into account all the universities evaluated. Confirmation of the scientific level of our researchers is also provided by the ELSEVIER Research Impact Leaders Awards 2023 in the Medical Sciences category, received a few days ago. This award also testifies to the high quality of scientific research and its internationalization.
