Medicine Faculty Rank as Super Doctors 2011

Thirty-one Einstein/Montefiore Department of Medicine faculty members were chosen for the Super Doctors listing of outstanding physicians. Candidates for the list, published as a special supplement in leading newspapers and city and regional magazines, were chosen from more than thirty consumer- oriented medical specialties and identified as having attained a high degree of peer recognition or professional achievement.

The Super Doctors selection process begins with a survey of doctors, asking them to nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field. This is supplemented by the research staff's search for doctors who have attained certain credentials, honors or professional achievements. An extensive research process follows, in which candidates are evaluated on indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement such as years of experience, hospital appointments, fellowships, professional activities, and leadership positions.

Nominees are then grouped into specialties, and doctors who have the highest scores from the nomination and evaluation steps are invited to serve on a "blue ribbon panel", reviewing and evaluating nominees from his/her area of focus. The highest-scoring doctors from this review (approximately 5% of the physicians within the respective state or region) are included on the Super Doctors list.
