The list recognizes physicians who have been practicing for 10 years or less. Winners were nominated by their peers and selected as “Rising Stars” after a rigorous evaluation process by an expert physician panel.

“We are so proud of the incredible faculty physicians who made the ‘Rising Stars’ list this year,” said Jakub Tolar, MD, PhD, Dean of the Medical School. “This recognition is a reflection of their dedication to their patients and communities.”
