A new ranking completed by Wallethub recently identified the best and worst states for U.S. physicians. Four of the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine’s (ICOM) “target states” — including Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota — landed in the top 10 best places, according to the survey.
Montana ranked No. 1 on Wallethub’s best places for physicians, while Idaho ranked No. 3. South Dakota and North Dakota were No. 6 and No. 10, respectively. The state of Wyoming, ICOM’s fifth target state, ranks No. 17.
Wallethub’s ranking takes into account the average annual wage of physicians to hospitals per capita, and quality of public hospital systems, among other methodology.
The mission of the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine — Idaho’s first medical school — is to train osteopathic physicians prepared for caring for persons in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and beyond.
