Recently, Doximity – an online professional networking service for physicians in the United States – and U.S. News & World Report collaborated to rank the top medical residency programs in the country. Having completed his plastic surgery residency at the University of Texas (UT) – Southwestern Medical School, Dr. Jon Kurkjian is thrilled to announce that the UT Southwestern Medical School is rated the number one program in the nation!
According to Doximity, the ranking list for plastic surgery residencies is based on peer reviews from physicians (both members and nonmembers of Doximity) who have trained and are board certified in plastic surgery. Each eligible doctor was allowed to nominate up to five residency programs that he or she deemed to be the most prestigious in the U.S. The University of Texas – Southwestern Medical School received 90 specialist nominations to top the list, edging the number two ranked program by 20 votes.
Dr. Kurkjian is both proud and honored to have attended UT Southwestern Medical School for his plastic surgery residency training, during which time he was selected by the faculty to serve as the Department of Plastic Surgery’s administrative chief resident in his final year. Ultimately, he hopes prospective plastic surgery patients will view this accolade as a testament to the level of experience, care, and expertise he is able to provide.
