    Worst places to practice in 2015



    Medscape recently ranked the worst states to practice medicine in 2015.

    The site analyzed data on cost of living from the Missouri Economic Research and Information Center, malpractice payouts per capita from Diederich Healthcare, overall state and local tax burden from the Tax Foundation, and physician compensation from the 2015 Medscape Physician Compensation Survey.

    Medscape also asked their readers for recommendations, talked to recruiters about practice conditions in each state, reviewed responses to the Physicians Foundation’s 2014 survey of more than 20,000 U.S. doctors, and interviewed practicing physicians.

    After delving through the list, ophthalmologists and Ophthalmology Times Editorial Advisory Board members from each of the five states that Medscape said were the worst to practice gave their thoughts—and defended their beloved homes.
