Castle Connolly Top DoctorsTM
The Castle Connolly Top DoctorsTM list is based on peer nominations. All licensed doctors in the country can participate in the nomination process. Each year, Castle Connolly receives close to 100,000 nominations. The researchers then conduct investigations. They talk to hospitals, specialists, and medical leaders across the country. They consider each doctor’s training, certifications, positions, and malpractice history. Only practitioners who demonstrate honesty, achievement, and clinical excellence are included on the final Top DoctorsTM list.
Super Doctors® 2015
Inclusion in the Super Doctors®list is a multistage process. First, the research team compiles a list of peer nominations. To determine the most outstanding practitioners, they ask doctors, “Who would you choose if you needed medical treatment for yourself?” The research team also compiles a list of its own candidates. For inclusion on the list, doctors must demonstrate excellence in 10 different categories. These include:
- Hospital appointments
- Academic achievements or positions
- Professional outreach and activities
- Publications and speaking engagements
- Additional accomplishments
Qualified doctors undergo a rigorous review and are ranked according to a points system. Only doctors with a high number of points can be included on the Super Doctors®list.
