Recently, the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences released the 2019 Science and Technology Evaluation Metrics (STEM) of China's medical colleges and hospitals. Our school ranks 17th overall among China's medical colleges and universities, which is four places higher than last year, ranking 5th in medical colleges that are built by the National Health Commission and provincial governments jointly. In the comprehensive ranking of Chinese hospitals, three affiliated hospitals of our university are among the top 100 in the series. Among them, the affiliated Eye Hospital ranks 45th nationally and the 3rd in Zhejiang Province, topping all eye hospitals in China.

In the 31 national top 100 rankings by subjects, the First Affiliated Hospital and the Second Affiliated Hospital are both shortlisted in 26 rankings, three and five more respectively than last year. The Eye Hospital ranks No. 2 in ophthalmology (the first in scientific and technological production for three consecutive years). The anaesthesiology of the Second Affiliated Hospital enters the top 10, ranking No. 7 in the country. Besides, nine subjects enter the top 30: the emergency medicine, neurosurgery, respiratory medicine, general surgery, and anesthesiology of the First Affiliated Hospital rank 12th, 21st, 23rd, 29th, 30th respectively; and the Second Affiliated Hospital ranks 17th, 20th, 21st, and 30th respectively in pediatrics, orthopaedics, allergy, and plastic surgery.
The 2019 Science and Technology Evaluation Metrics (STEM) of China's medical colleges, in accordance with the national strategy of "double-first-class" construction, based on the integration of production, teaching, and research, following the established evaluation process, has further revealed the development of science and technology in medical colleges and universities in a comprehensive approach. The 2019 Science and Technology Evaluation Metrics (STEM) of China's hospitals has followed a unified standard, source, and method to construct an evaluation system from the dimensions of scientific and technological production, academic impact, and scientific and technological conditions. Meanwhile the evaluation work was further optimized by establishing an ongoing monitoring mechanism for academic misconduct and a three-level data monitoring and management mechanism.
