( - Doctors are among the most highly paid, educated and celebrated professions in the United States. Just consider the fact that "physician" is the most popular profession within the top 1% of earners. Doctors are deserving, after all, given the importance of their life-saving work and all of the struggles associated with life in the medical profession.

Not only does the average med school graduate leave campus with roughly $176K in debt, but the medical profession has also been undergoing intense changes in recent years. The Affordable Care Act, the rise of branded hospital networks, the impending retirement of Baby Boomers and an increasingly litigious society are all complicating the lives of doctors and providing pause to potential white-coats.

With all of this being said, it's fair to expect a certain measure of difference in terms of the working environments faced by doctors across the country. And, in order to help U.S. doctors make the most informed decisions regarding where to live and work, as well as to help local governments identify policy initiatives, WalletHub compared each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia along 12 key metrics designed to identify 2015's Best & Worst States for Doctors.
