UAMS Physicians Among Top Doctors in America

By Kalee Sexton

Out of 264 Arkansas physicians selected, 76 from UAMS made the Top Doctors in Arkansas list, which is compiled annually by Castle Connolly, a leading research and health care information service company headquartered in New York. The list is published by the Arkansas Times.

Doctors are selected based on a poll that collects nominations and opinions from thousands of doctors across the country, according to Castle Connolly. A physician-led research team screens the nominees and evaluates them on such criteria as professional qualifications, education, hospital and faculty appointments, research leadership, professional reputation and disciplinary history. Physicians can’t pay to be on the list.

The UAMS doctors who were selected cover a wide range of specialties, including family medicine, internal medicine, otolaryngology, oncology, orthopaedics and others. Additionally, several of the physicians have joint appointments at Arkansas Children’s or the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System, which are major clinical, research and teaching affiliates of UAMS.
