Castle Connolly Unveils Year-Round Nominations For Top Doctors

big-prizeBeginning this year, all licensed MD’s and DO’s will be able to nominate doctors for the Castle Connolly Top Doctors List throughout the year. The list is a tool used by referring doctors and potential patients alike.

Nominators may submit up to 10 nominations in their own field, up to three in other specialties, and up to five primary care practitioners. When thinking about doctors to nominate, ideal candidates could include those to whom you refer or those from whom you receive referrals.

Those practitioners who earn a place on the list will receive exposure through the Castle Connolly website, books and strategic relationships. All eligible practitioners are encouraged to vote.

Information on the nominations process can be found at Practitioners will need to provide some initial information including their individual National Provider Identification number (NPI). A cheat sheet on voting can be found here.

Below is a short list of key resources for voting-related help.
