Compared to last year`s indicators, the university improved its position for the first time in the last seven years and climbed five lines, taking 84th place in the list.
«The positive dynamics in the RAEX-100 ranking of the best universities in Russia first of all demonstrate the competitiveness of the Ural Medical University, confirms its reputation in the academic community, and also speaks of the importance of medical education in general. This result is a consequence of the systematic work of the team of our university, the entire team, as well as an additional incentive to continue moving in this direction and strengthen leadership positions by participating in the program of strategic academic leadership «Priority-2030» – rector of the Ural State Medical University Olga Kovtun said.
In the RAEX-100 rating, Ural Medical University has grown in all assessment groups – in terms of conditions for obtaining a quality education, the level of demand for graduates by employers, and the level of research activities. Along with USMU, only 14 medical universities of the country entered the top 100 (there are 46 of them in Russia), while the Ural Federal District is represented only by the Ural and Tyumen Medical Universities. From the Sverdlovsk region, only two universities – USMU and UrFU – also became participants in the rating. We note that the Ural Medical University has been included in the RAEX-100 rating of the best universities in Russia since 2012.
