How Desirable is Your State to Work for Physicians?
For social media folks involved in physician recruiting (which may become more problematic in the times of CoVid), here are some starting point links on how your State shapes up in terms of physician friendliness. Some of the links are a few years old, but it is a starting point.
Cost of Living by State: https://worldpopulationreview.com/states/cost-of-living-index-by-state/
Medical Malpractice Risk per State (per 100,000): https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/hospital-physician-relationships/a-state-by-state-breakdown-of-medical-malpractice-suits.html
Physician Friendliness for Mental Health Issues ( eg – in what state would a doctor have to report to the licensing board a distant history of treatment for postpartum depression?)
The reportability for prior mental health issues are particularly important because to me it acts as a pretty good proxy for how the State Medical Board treats its physicians.
so, despite its high cost of living, IMHO—looking at all of these concurrently—, Hawaii comes out on top.
