The 2021 State Physician Workforce Data Report examines current physician supply, undergraduate medical education (UME) students, and graduate medical education (GME) residents and fellows in the United States.

The report provides the most current data available for each of the 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia (D.C.), and Puerto Rico in a series of maps, figures, and tables, including the U.S. average (excluding Puerto Rico), state median (excluding D.C. and Puerto Rico), and state rank.

Additionally, this edition includes a summary table that compares the state median for each physician workforce measure in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2020.

Readers will find data in four categories:

  • Physician Supply includes data on active physicians in each state, including physician-to-population ratios, demographic information, and school type.
  • Undergraduate Medical Education provides information on enrollment at both MD-granting and DO-granting schools, as well as data on in-state matriculation.
  • Graduate Medical Education presents data on physicians in residency and fellowship positions in each state, including physician-to-population ratios, resident- and fellow-to-population ratios, and medical school type.
  • Retention presents data on states’ retention of the physicians they educate in MD- or DO-granting schools and GME programs.
