Objective To screen and analyse the dominated related factors for medical discipline construction and development, and provide evidences for the reinforcement of discipline connotation construction. Methods The candidate medical disciplines of State Key Disciplines Evaluation of 2007 were served as study subjects. Disciplines from the results of State Key Discipline Evaluation were divided into "new discipline" group (n=51), "breeding discipline" group (n=33) and "failed discipline" group (n=81). The differences between results of State Key Discipline Evaluation and corresponding data of past years (2001 to 2006) in academic team, scientific research, graduate education and lab construction were analysed by nonparametric Kruskal-Wallis test. Results There were significant differences in academic leader, state key project, prize level, graduates quality and scientific research base among the results of State Key Discipline Evaluation(P≤0.05), and the dominated factors for the unsuccessful result were lack of high-level academic leader, state key discipline, prize, gruaduates and scientific research base. Conclusion The adoption of appropriate measures for the construction of academic team, the reinforcement of scientific research and the establishment of academic achievement evaluation may help to upgrade the academic level.
