Among the top ones in the world

The Athens Medical School took the 140th place for best School in the world, ranked by the National Taiwan University (Performance ranking of Scientific Papers). This ranking is considered to be particularly important as it is influenced by the long-standing, high-level and consistent scientific research done in Universities rather than research resources, educational infrastructure, and individual achievements of faculty members.

At the same time, the University of Athens Medical School participates in the top 500 Universities in three academic subjects, compared to last year, in the ranking of individual academic fields and fields of the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), known as the Shanghai List.

In fact, at the subject of Public Health, the School is in positions 76-100, while in the subject of Clinical Medicine it moved to position 151-200 from position 201-300, certifying the upward course of recent years. In Quacquarelli Symonds’ ranking, the academic reputation and research impact of the Athens Medical School is ranked 241st in the world.

Apart from accomplishments at Department level, there are individual distinctions among faculty members and researchers that are reflected in the world rankings of Universities. More specifically, the publication of Webometrics’s Highly Cited Researchers (h> 100) for 2018 showed that there are ten Greek university professors with significant research impact, five of which come from the Athens Medical School.



This list is based on the public profile of Professors and Researchers of Universities in Google Scholar. It records teachers and researchers from Universities who have exercised considerable influence over science over time with their writing and research work. This classification includes 2,610 Highly Cited Researchers, ie researchers with h-index> 100 – in other words, researchers who have at least 100 research papers cited as a valid report by at least 100 researchers in their own work.

The five professors and researchers of the  Athens Medical School with the significant research impact on the world are Professor George P Chrousos with h-index 179 and 132.181 citations to his published work, the Professor and Dean of the Meletios Institute, Athanasios Dimopoulos with h-index 118 and 60.208 other references, Marinos Dalakas with h-index 105 and 40.203 citations, Professor Charalambos Moutsopoulos with h-index 104 and 44.661 citations, and Professor Christodoulos Stefanadis with h-index 103 and 57.879 citations.
