Children's Minnesota in the News

Children’s “Rising Stars” recognized by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

Congratulations to the 79 Children’s Minnesota physicians recognized by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine as 2017 “Rising Stars.” This is the third edition of the Top Doctors Rising Stars list, which highlights outstanding physicians who have been fully licensed to practice for approximately 10 years or less. This year’s list includes 383 doctors in 43 specialties, who were selected after a peer-nomination process. Candidates were evaluated on myriad factors, including (but not limited to) professional achievement, review by an expert physician panel, extensive research and disciplinary history. Only doctors who received the highest total points from the surveys, research and blue-ribbon panel were selected to this list.

The Rising Stars are listed in the April issue of the magazine and online. In addition, Dr. Angela Goepferd, director of medical education, pediatrician and pediatric hospitalist, was interviewed and photographed for the feature article, “In the Spotlight.”

Congratulations to all of our Rising Stars and thank you for all you do to “be remarkable” every day!
