The table summarises the universities where research is a strength for medicine. A university is called strong in research if it is placed in the leader group in at least half of all indicators. The universities of Heidelberg and Tübingen made the leader group in six of the seven indicators; in all, the group of faculties with good human medicine research included nine universities. The universities of Erlangen-Nuremberg and Würzburg and the Hanover Medical School achieved their top rankings mainly based on the absolute indicators, while they only made the leader group for one of the per-head indicators.
