UC Faculty Fill Top Doctors List

More than three-quarters if the 111 doctors in Greater Cincinnati cited by U.S.News & World Report as being "Top Doctors” are faculty members of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.

The unranked directory by U.S.News includes the names of 85 physicians who at the time the list was prepared were on the UC faculty. The list was developed in collaboration with data from Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., publisher of America’s Top Doctors. Those named to the list are based on peer nominations from doctors across the country. Doctors cannot nominate themselves.

U.S.News did not rank the doctors but did identify those doctors who in Castle Connolly’s estimation were among the top 1 percent in the United States in their specialty. Forty-two of the 51 doctors from the Greater Cincinnati region identified in this subgroup are UC faculty members.

    Chief Resident Selected for J.T. Rutherford Fellowship Program

    Bhavya Rehani, MD, senior radiology resident and chief resident, was selected to participate in the American College of Radiology’s 2011-12 J.T. Rutherford Fellowship Program. The J.T. Rutherford Fellowship, named in honor of ACR’s first lobbyist, was founded in 1993 to provide radiology residents direct personal exposure to ACR’s government relations activities. It allows residents an opportunity to gain an understanding of ACR’s role in state and federal legislative and regulatory processes and informs residents about the governmental factors that shape the future of radiology.

    In addition to congressional apprenticing, fellows spend the week learning about the role of other ACR departments, meeting with members of congress and their staff, attending fundraisers, meeting with representatives of federal regulatory agencies, and attending any in-house ACR meetings.
