Office-based practices like yours supported 4 million jobs nationally in 2009, according to a new report from the American Medical Association (AMA).

That figure includes jobs at the practices and those at vendors and retailers where staff members spend their earnings. Physicians support an average of 6.2 jobs apiece, including their own. One physician leads to about $100,000 in state and local tax revenue and $2.2 million in overall economic activity, the study found.
