Updated data on physician supply and medical education

The Association of American Medical Colleges has released an updated report on current physician supply, medical school enrollment, and graduate medical education. The 2011 State Physician Workforce Data Book, an update of the 2009 edition, presents data in four sections:

  • Physician Supply. Active physicians in each state, including physician-to-population ratios, percent female, age distribution, and type of medical education.
  • Medical and Osteopathic School Enrollment. Information on enrollment for both medical and osteopathic schools, as well as data on in-state matriculation.
  • Graduate Medical Education. Data on physicians in residency and fellowship posi­tions in each state, including physician-to-population ratios, degree type, and location of medical school. 
  • In-State Retention. Data on states’ retention of the physicians they educate in medi­cal or osteopathic schools and train in graduate medical education programs.
