The Best States to Practice Medicine

Wondering which states are friendliest to private-practice physicians? It's a question I get often, ever since Physicians Practice debuted its Best States to Practice feature (updated biannually) in 2003.

Instead of putting all the data in a magic blender and divining some overall "top 5" list, we decided to show you which states did the best in each category, and which tended to show up repeatedly on the bottom. We put all this in an easy-to-read chart. If you don't see your state, it's because you live somewhere that did not distinguish itself for either good or bad reasons.

Have fun with the list. Meanwhile, help your colleagues out: In the comment section below, tell us which state you're practicing in and then give it a grade, A - F. Tell us whether you'd move if you could, or whether you're happy where you are.
