Tennessee is home to numerous medical centers, including Vanderbilt University Medical Center, which is ranked as the best hospital in the state and ranks nationally as a leader in seven adult and ten pediatric specialties, and Methodist Hospitals of Memphis, which is nationally ranked in eight pediatric specialties.
WalletHub ranked Tennessee as the ‘6th Best State for Doctors’ in the nation in 2020, scoring well in areas like Average Monthly Starting Salary of Physicians, Projected Physicians per Capita by 2026, and Malpractice Award Payout Amount per Capita. Medscape adds, “Tennessee Physicians are more likely to report being very happy both inside and outside of the clinic than are doctors and most other states. Adjusted for the cost of living the state ranks number three in average physician compensation and malpractice pads are among the lowest in the nation.”
Overall, Tennessee is considered a good state for physicians. A low cost of living, good pay for doctors, tort reform, small towns, progressive communities, and plenty of music and attractions make The Volunteer state an ideal place to practice medicine.
