Mpls.St.Paul Magazine Recognizes 193 Medical School Faculty as Top Doctors

193 University of Minnesota Medical School faculty members in 17 different departments were featured in Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s recently released 2020 list of Top Doctors.

Top Doctors are nominated by their peers, who are asked which physicians they would go to for medical care. The candidates who made the final list were grouped into over 40 specialties and evaluated on indicators of peer recognition, professional achievement, research and disciplinary history.

The doctors who acquired the highest total points from the surveys, research and the expert physician review panel were named Top Doctors.

“Serving the communities across our state is one of our primary goals at the Medical School,” says Jakub Tolar, MD, PhD, dean of the Medical School. “This recognition is one of many proofpoints that our faculty are providing outstanding patient care to the state of Minnesota.”
