Where are physician jobs in greatest demand?

Boston experienced the most significant increase in demand for physicians among large U.S. metropolitan areas between 2016 and 2017, according to a report from Doximity.

The study examined data from the Doximity network, which includes more than a million U.S. healthcare professionals, to determine physician jobs available nationally. Researchers specifically looked at 12,000 physician job advertisements on the network in 20 large U.S. metropolitan areas and 15 medical specialties in 2016 and 2017. 

Boston topped the list of metropolitan areas where physicians are most in demand. Physician job postings there increased 72 percent from 2016 to 2017.

Other metropolitan areas in the top five are San Francisco (42 percent), Chicago (36 percent), Washington, D.C. (23 percent) and New York City (21 percent).

The bottom five metropolitan areas with large increases in physician job postings are Denver (12 percent), Seattle (4 percent), Philadelphia (2 percent), Miami (2 percent) and Los Angeles (1 percent).
