82 UChicago Medicine physicians named to 2019 ‘Top Docs’ list
Chicago magazine’s annual “Top Doctors” list includes 82 physicians from the University of Chicago Medicine, more than any other institution on the roster.
UChicago Medicine clinicians accounted for roughly 23 percent of the 361 physicians cited in the magazine’s January 2019 issue. That’s up from 16 percent of the 591 physicians named to the 2018 list.
“We are proud that members of our faculty were recognized in a public way for the care they provide our patients and their families,” said Kenneth S. Polonsky, MD, Dean and EVP for Medical Affairs, University of Chicago.
The compendium of Chicago-area physicians is drawn from experts in 62 specialties and sub-specialties, based on data collected by the research company Castle Connolly Medical. Those named are nominated by their peers nationwide who consider a number of factors, including clinical excellence, bedside manner, education and board certification. Chicago magazine takes additional considerations into account when determining who to feature, such as mix of specialties and relevance/availability for consumers.
