U.S. News - 3/1/2012 12:00:00 AM
In its most recent survey, U.S. News in collaboration
with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. listed twenty-five (25)
surgeons in the UCSF Department of Surgery, nearly
one-third (1/3) of the clinical faculty, on the list of U.S. News
"Top Doctors". The list, compiled from the opinion of
colleagues, denotes the top 10% of physicians
within a region practicing a given
specialty. Fifteen of the 25 department
surgeons were also named by their peers to the list
of America's Top Doctors (ATD), a
distinction reserved for the top 1% of physicians
in the nation for that specialty.
The listings are published online at U.S. News. The group
rankings are intended to guide patients in selecting a
doctor and physicians in making specialty referrals.
