About the National Physician of the Year Awards

Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. created the National Physician of the year Awards nearly a decade ago as a further way to acknowledge the clinical excellence that typifies American medicine.  Building upon its already broad and deep processes for the identification of Castle Connolly Top Doctors®, it annually solicits special nominations from thousands of physicians across the country and the leadership of more than 1,000 hospitals to identify extraordinary physicians who have made significant and cutting-edge contributions to their areas of medicine.  The three physicians selected annually for Clinical Excellence awards have already made major contributions over the course of their medical careers to-date and are expected to do so in the years ahead.  The two physicians recognized annually for Lifetime Achievement have achieved international and national recognition for the body of their lifetime contributions to medicine and health on the broadest of levels.
Though the creation of these very special National Physician of the year Awards, Castle Connolly continues to demonstrate its commitment to the very best in
American medicine.
