DIFFERENCES IN THE NUMBER OF INTERNATIONAL MD’s BY STATE
As of 2020, it is estimated that just under 25% of the physician workforce in the United States are international medical graduates. As the demand for physicians in the United States continues to grow, international medical graduates will also be in increased demand. This is great news for those of you considering UHSA for your medical education.
When considering residency positions, it is helpful for foreign graduates to look at those states which have the highest percentage of physicians who attended international medical schools. Not only does this suggest the state is welcoming to foreign medical graduates, but that faculty in residency programs may themselves be foreign graduates. This combination increases your likelihood of matching in those states.
Below, are the states with the largest and smallest number of international graduates working as physicians.
