Sixteen University of Virginia Cancer Center physicians were named to Newsweek’s “Top Cancer Doctors 2015” listing.
Newsweek developed the list in partnership with Castle Connolly Medical LTD, which publishes America’s Top Doctors ® . According to Newsweek’s website, a Castle Connolly team led by physicians reviewed nearly 100,000 nominations, then talked with hospital leaders and cancer specialists to develop the list of top cancer doctors.
