Residents Who Completed Training, 2010-19
The table below displays the number and percentage of individuals who completed residency training in an ACGME-accredited program from 2010 through 2019 anywhere in the United States and Puerto Rico, are not currently active in any GME program, and practice in Medically Underserved Areas (MUAs) compared with those who do not practice in MUAs. Federally designated MUAs are based on an Index of Medical Underservice, which is derived from an area's ratio of primary medical care physicians per 1,000 population, infant mortality rate, percentage of the population with incomes below the poverty level, and percentage of the population age 65 or over. Data are for graduates of MD-granting and DO-granting U.S. and Canadian schools and of international medical schools. The data are limited to physicians providing direct patient care in the United States and Puerto Rico. The "State of Practice" indicates the state where the physician is currently practicing, regardless of where the physician completed residency training. For example, 1,329 of 2,293 (58.0%) residents who completed a residency program from 2010 through 2019 and are now practicing in Alabama are practicing in MUAs of Alabama.

Selected Finding: The percentage of individuals who completed residency training from 2010 through 2019 and are now practicing in MUAs varies widely across states, ranging from 3.3% in North Dakota to 90.2% in Puerto Rico.
