Sixty-seven physicians from the University of Virginia Health System appear on the first “Top Doctors” directory issued by U.S. News & World Report.
Of the 67 UVA doctors selected, 48 are among the top 1 percent in the nation in their respective fields, according to Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., which collaborated with U.S. News to create the on-line directory.
UVA Medical Center ranked first among hospitals in central Virginia by a vast margin for the number of top doctors – no other institution in the region had more than one physician listed. UVA also ranked second in the state just behind INOVA Fairfax (68), and followed by Virginia Commonwealth University Health System (51) and Sentara Norfolk General (48).
The U.S. News list, which includes nearly 30,000 doctors from across the nation, expands upon Castle Connolly’s annual publication America’s Top Doctors and other guides.
The U.S. News “Top Doctors” list was compiled from nominations submitted by doctors across the United States who could nominate their peer physicians. The list then was reviewed by Castle Connolly’s physician-led research team.
