Fewest physicians: States with the lowest numbers of doctors

Feature
Article

A dozen states have fewer than 10,000 physicians.

Across the nation, there are a dozen states with fewer than 10,000 physicians.

Some in New England are small in area, while some in the west are larger. But a common trait is ranking lowest among the 50 states for the number of doctors, according to the latest figures from the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB).

In July FSMB released its “Census of Licensed Physicians in the United States, 2022.” The report, compiled every two years since 2010, outlines demographics of the U.S. physician workforce.

This slideshow lists the 12 states with the fewest physicians, less than 10,000 per state.
