Best States to Practice 2012 - Best and Worst

For our annual Best States to Practice report, we look at hard, comparable facts: cost of living, disciplinary actions taken against physicians, tax burden per capita, Medicare GPCI, physician density, and malpractice award payouts per capita in each state. We don't consider lifestyle-oriented factors such as climate, proximity to cultural institutions, or recreational opportunities. Such factors have less influence over your daily practice, and they are relative. While some of you are lured in by a state's beautiful golf courses, for instance, others care less about hitting the links. But all of you, we'd be willing to bet, care a whole lot about tax burden. Here's a look at some of the best and worst states identified in this year's report, and some feedback from the physicians who practice there. If your state is not highlighted here, we've compiled all the data on every state (and the District of Columbia) on the main Best States to Practice State.
