The U.S. News & World Report expert opinion survey is traditionally conducted in February and March each year. The sum of votes from the survey is used to calculate a hospital’s reputation score, which contributes to the hospital’s overall ranking on the Best Hospitals list.
In order to participate, physicians must be board-certified in one of the 15 U.S. News-ranked specialties, and they must be credential-verified members of Doximity. This means you must have an active and claimed Doximity profile before the end of the 2022 survey period.
