Newswise — This year, 84 University of Chicago Medicine physicians were acknowledged for being at the forefront of cancer care by being named to Chicago magazine’s 2019 list of top cancer doctors – the most of any Chicago-area health system. A total of 396 physicians made the list.

This special edition of the publication’s annual “Top Docs” list highlights the top cancer doctors in the Chicagoland area as selected by their peers and through consideration of a number of factors such as clinical excellence, bedside manner, education and board certification. Data are collected and analyzed by the research company Castle Connolly Medical.

UChicago Medicine is designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute, the highest federal rating a cancer center can achieve. It’s the gold standard for cancer programs and is bestowed upon the nation’s top cancer centers in recognition of their innovative research and leading-edge treatments. UChicago Medicine is one of only two NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in Chicago.
