The best states for physicians in 2020: The 11 worst states

Article

Physicians might not get the most bang for the buck in these states.

What are the best states for physicians to practice in? Find out in the 2020 Best States to Practice rankings, a project produced by our partner publication at Physicians Practice.

Editors ranked the states based on 2019 data covering five categories:

  • Mean salary
  • Highest/lowest malpractice premiums
  • The 2019 cost of living index
  • Tax climate (state collections per capita)
  • Physician density
  • Malpractice premium costs

Physicians Practice obtained the data from publicly available sources and partner organizations.

The Cunningham Group provided malpractice premium averages for each state.

Here’s a brief description of our methodology: We ranked each state on the criteria described desirable outcome per criteria, then averaging those scores resulted in the ranks of all 50 states and D.C.
