More than 300 University of Iowa doctors have been named “best in the nation.”

The “Best Doctors in America” 2011-12 database named 316 UI Hospitals and Clinics and UI Children’s Hospital doctors in its list, according to a UI press release.

The physicians, all part of UI Physicians — a faculty group practice in the Carver College of Medicine — make up 60 percent of the Iowa doctors recognized in the database. They come from various UI departments, including anesthesiology, cardiovascular disease, and pediatric specialists.

The database creates the list by having doctors rate other physicians on their clinical abilities. It lists 50,000 doctors worldwide.
