Dozens of UCH Physicians in 5280 Magazine's "Top Docs" for 2010
AURORA, Colo. – Sixty four physicians in 47 specialties from University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) appear in the 2010 Top Doctors issue of 5280: Denver's Magazine.
Physicians with University of Colorado Hospital are also affiliated with the University of Colorado's School of Medicine. They teach the next generation of caregivers, so they have to stay ahead of the latest research and be aware of the best ways to treat diseases.
The Top Doctors issue is a perennial top-seller on local newsstands and was the first ever cover story in July 1993. Daniel Brogan, editor and publisher of 5280 says, "5280's Top Docs is a list that readers refer to again and again because it is credible. We don't pick the docs – Denver's physicians do. Our theory is that medical professionals are best qualified to judge other medical professionals."
Doctors select doctors
In order to select the top doctors and facilities, 5280 opened its survey to every metro-area doctor with a valid Colorado medical license practicing in the state. The survey listed a variety of specialties and asked the doctors who they would trust to treat them or a member of their families in each of the 87 categories. The ballot was posted online at 5280.com. Downloadable list of UCH doctors (PDF).
