It is obviously an honor because FKUI has been able to maintain this ranking at the national level for three consecutive years. The results of this ranking prove that FKUI is considered capable of maintaining and improving excellent performance in its field. Currently the achievement of international scientific articles recorded in Scopus also continues to increase from only 400 publications in 2017 to nearly 900 publications by the end of 2020. The achievement of this number of international publications is the highest in Indonesia and is even above universities from other countries such as Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM).
FKUI’s joining into the 251-300 world rankings, and ranked 6-7 in ASEAN with Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, has again put this well-known medical faculty in Indonesia to be the best in Indonesia and respected in ASEAN. At the ASEAN level, FKUI and UKM are under the National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Mahidol University, Universiti Malaya, and Chulalongkorn University.
In addition, FKUI’s position is equivalent to that of medical faculties from other prestigious universities in Asia such as the University of Tsukuba in Japan, Kaoshiung Medical University in Taiwan, and is above Kobe University in Japan, Istanbul University in Turkey, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), University Sains Malaysia (USM), and University of The Philippine in the Philippines.
