192 CU Faculty Recognized as 5280 Magazine Top Doctors for 2022


Denver-area magazine 5280 recently published its list of top doctors for 2022. On this year’s list, CU School of Medicine faculty members continue to be ranked among the best. We’re proud to congratulate the 192 CU School of Medicine faculty members honored with the title “Top Doctor.”

The list is compiled from a survey of Denver-area physicians asking them “whom they would trust to treat themselves or a loved one” in a variety of specialty-based categories. This year, the list includes 343 total doctors in 100 specialties.
