Vote in USNWR 2021 Physician Survey

Each year, U.S. News and World Report releases its “Best Hospitals” and “Best Children’s Hospitals” lists to help patients and caregivers find the best medical facilities for themselves and their families. UVA Medical Center and UVA Children’s have consistently been recognized as having both nationally ranked and high-performing specialties. This year, U.S. News ranked the UVA Medical Center as the #1 hospital in Virginia for the fifth consecutive year, and UVA Children’s had five nationally ranked specialties. UVA was also recognized as a “High Performer” in Cancer, Gastroenterology and GI Surgery, Nephrology, Orthopedics, Pulmonology and Lung Surgery, and Urology in 2020.

A significant factor in these rankings is reputation, as determined by a survey of board-certified physicians in each of 16 adult specialties and 10 pediatric specialties ranked by U.S. News and World Report. The perspective of UVA medical alumni and former trainees is extremely important, and we hope you will take part in the survey.

U.S. News will send a survey invitation by email in late February or early March 2021 who were Doximity members as of November 1, 2020 and are board certified in one of the specialties included in the rankings. We encourage alumni and former trainees to take part in the survey and share your valuable perspective.

Doximity is the largest secure medical network with over a million verified members, enabling collaboration across specialties and every major medical center.
