U.S. Physician Workforce Data Dashboard

Note: If you experience an issue with the dashboard loading, please ensure your web browser is up to date and your web browser's cache has been cleared. 

The U.S. Physician Workforce Data Dashboard provides the most current data available about the physician workforce across specialties in a series of interactive dashboards. The U.S. Physician Workforce Data Dashboard combines data previously published in two separate AAMC workforce studies reports, Physician Specialty Data Report and State Physician Workforce Data Report.

This dashboard provides detailed statistics about active physicians in the largest practice specialties (i.e., specialties with > 2,500 active physicians) in the United States and its territories. Data include the number of physicians by specialty, the number of people per direct patient care physician by specialty, age, sex, race/ethnicity, major professional activity, medical school location, and type of U.S. medical degree by specialty. The dashboard's next iteration will provide data for physicians in Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) residencies and fellowship programs. Please check back periodically for the next dashboard iteration.

Primary Data Sources

  • The 2023 American Medical Association (AMA) Physician Professional Data (as of Dec. 31, 2022) provided data for active physicians. The AMA Physician Professional Data is updated annually from various sources, including a survey of physicians.
  • Race and ethnicity are obtained from a variety of AAMC sources (e.g., Electronic Residency Application Service, American Medical College Application Service, Medical College Admission Test) with priority given to the most recent, self-reported source.
  • U.S. Census Bureau population estimates were used to calculate the number of people per physician.
