11Medical and Health Sciences
This section provides a summary of ERA 2018 results and activity by aggregated four-digit FoR code.
Comparative information is presented for each discipline at the four-digit level and includes:
- Fields of Research overview with the aggregated four-digit data for each ERA indicator
- the distribution table and chart showing the number of UoEs per rating scale score (including the two- and four-digit ratings for that FoR)
- research outputs submitted by type (chart and table)
- research income by year-all categories ($) (chart and table)
- staffing profile by academic level (chart and table)
- patent profile (where applicable) (table only)
- research commercialisation income by year ($) (chart and table)
- Where an indicator does not apply to a particular discipline ‘-’ is shown. A ‘0’ represents that the indicator applies to the discipline, but no data was submitted.
- Percentages <1 not shown on doughnut charts for research outputs by type.
- Totals in the doughnut charts may not sum to 100% due to rounding.
- The sum of component items in tables may not match column/row totals due to rounding. See Section 4 for downloadable spreadsheets with un-rounded data.

Medical and Health Sciences (11) accounted for approximately 23 per cent of the research outputs submitted to ERA 2018. Journal articles were the most common research output type in the Medical and Health Sciences (94 per cent). The two largest Medical and Health Sciences Disciplines for research outputs, research income and staff FTE were Clinical Sciences (1103) and Public Health and Health Services (1117). Research commercialisation income was also particularly strong in Clinical Sciences (1103). Medical and Health Sciences accounted for approximately 21 per cent of all patents.
