To be selected for inclusion on the list, candidates must have been in practice for 10 years or less. Each individual named to the list of “Rising Stars” was chosen by peers in the field. This year, the magazine recognized more than 60 University of Minnesota Health-affiliated doctors. 

A total of 71 physicians representing University of Minnesota Physicians were included on the 2016 list. University of Minnesota Physicians is the multi-specialty group practice for the University of Minnesota Medical School faculty. See last year's list of winners.
