Texas Ranks Near the Top in U.S. Physician Recruitment


Thanks to our strong economy, good practice environment, and 2003 medical liability reforms, Texas continues to be a national leader in attracting new physicians to the state. The just-released 2015 Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Data Book shows Texas ranked second only to California in growth in the number of new patient care physicians in 2012-14 and fifth in the nation in percentage growth. That continues a trend AAMC has documented since 2008. During that period, Texas ranked second nationally both in percentage growth and in attracting the most physicians who treat patients. Texas attracted nearly as many active patient care physicians as Florida and New York combined. “Texas has effective medical lawsuit reforms,” said Howard Marcus, MD, chair of the Texas Alliance for Patient Access. “Florida and New York do not.”
