Defining Excellence - Oxford Anatomy and Physiology ranked #1 in the QS World University Rankings by subject 2017, 2018, 2020, 2021, and 2022.

DPAG has once again been ranked world number one for Anatomy and Physiology in the 2022 QS World University Rankings by Subject.

Published annually, QS World Rankings by Subject uses four components to rank universities: academic reputation, which this year drew on responses from over 100,000 academics worldwide; employer reputation, which this year drew on nearly 50,000 survey responses from graduate employers worldwide; research citations per paper, which reflects the most prevalent publication patterns in a given discipline; and H-index, which measures both the productivity and impact of published work. Read the full methodology here.

The Medical Sciences Division as a whole has once again been ranked second in the world, and the University of Oxford came top across five disciplines in total.

The QS World University Rankings 2023 is out today, with the University of Oxford coming in fourth overall.
