A study recently released by WalletHub dubbed Maryland one of the worst states in the country for doctors. In fact, Maryland is the 7th worst state for doctors, ranking 44th out of the 51 states.
The study compared states on a number of metrics, including annual salaries, starting salaries, hospitals per capita, cost of malpractice insurance, hospital quality competition, and how much was awarded in malpractice per capita. In general, Maryland tends to have a higher cost of living, lower wages, and higher costs of malpractice insurance when compared to most other states. Other states that are in the top 10 worst states for doctors in 2018 include Illinois, California, Oregon, Massachusetts, Washington, D.C., Hawaii, New York, Rhode Island, and New Jersey.
