Deadline to register Doximity account for 2019 U.S. News Best Hospitals voting is Nov. 15

The annual hospital reputation survey used by U.S. News & World Report to develop its Best Hospitals rankings will be distributed via the Doximity website (www.Doximity.com) in February 2019. To participate in the 2019 reputation survey, voting-eligible specialists must register or “claim” their profiles on the Doximity website by November 15 of this year.

Registration on Doximity is a one-time-only requirement. Those who have claimed their Doximity profiles and participated in the Best Hospitals survey previously are not required to register again.

To check your registration on Doximity:

  1. Visit www.doximity.com
  2. Search your first and last name
  3. If you have not yet claimed your profile, you will be asked to complete two verification questions and confirm your email.

Doximity is the sole digital distribution channel for the U.S. News Best Hospitals survey. U.S. News also distributes approximately 200 paper ballots each year to physicians in each voting specialty who are not registered on Doximity. The table available here shows the specialty/subspecialty categories considered eligible for last year’s survey by U.S. News and Doximity.

VUMC appreciates the support of our School of Medicine alumni in the annual reputation survey. This year, VUMC was recognized on the Honor Roll of top 20 best hospitals, and as having top-ranked programs in 10 of the 16 specialties ranked by U.S. News.
