Baltimore, MD — August 1, 2011. U.S. News & World Report is well-known for its annual Best Hospitals list, published each year in the August edition of the magazine. But this year, the magazine added a new component: an on-line listing of some of the nation’s “top doctors."
The University of Maryland has more than 60 doctors on this list, including 29 cancer specialists from the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center (UMGCC).
The Greenebaum Cancer Center also ranked among the top 25 cancer centers nationwide in U.S. News & World Report’s 2011 – 2012 Best Hospitals ranking.
Here are UMGCC's U.S. News and World Report “Top Doctors” 2011:
All of our physicians are clinical faculty of the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
The U.S. News Top Doctors list was compiled by an independent agency that sent surveys to thousands of doctors and health care professionals across the country asking them to identify excellent doctors in every specialty. In addition to the mail and online surveys, the researchers called thousands of leading specialists, chairs of clinical departments and vice presidents of medical affairs seeking their input. A physician-led research team then reviewed the credentials of all doctors considered for the list looking at a variety of factors, including medical education, training, hospital appointments, administrative posts and professional achievements.
The University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center offers comprehensive multidisciplinary treatment for all types of cancer. For more information about our programs or services, please call 1-800-888-8823.
