Nashville, (TN) – The just-published third edition of America’s Top Doctors lists 46 VUMC physicians among its rankings, an increase over the 39 cited in the book’s second edition, published last year.

The guide, published by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., uses a peer recommendation methodology to choose the physicians included.

The volume breaks down its selections by specialty and geographical area. Sixty-seven Tennessee physicians are cited in the book, meaning that about two-thirds of the listed "top doctors" in the entire state are at VUMC.

In the previous edition published in 2002, there were 39 Vanderbilt physicians listed. "This is yet another indicator of the awesome quality of the physicians we have at Vanderbilt, and, needless to say, I am proud of all of our faculty who made this list," said Dr. Harry R. Jacobson, vice
chancellor for Health Affairs.
