How much does internal medicine in the US cost?
The cost of an average internal medicine resident can range from $60,000 to $130,000, depending on the state and provider, according to a study published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
The study, which was led by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, found that internal medicine residents cost an average of $30,842 in 2017.
Internal medicine is a specialty of the primary care division of the National Institutes of Health.
Among the study’s authors were Kristina Zuk, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at Harvard Medical School; Matthew D. Brown, assistant professor of internal medicine at Harvard; and David M. Fisk, assistant director of the Institute for Clinical Research in the Department of Medicine at Boston University.
The authors also identified seven states where internal medicine was the highest cost specialty in 2018.
They found that Ohio was the second-highest-cost state in 2017, with an average resident cost of $63,838.
The highest-cost specialty was in New York, where the average resident fee for an internal medicine physician was $84,865.
The average resident rate was highest in New Jersey, where residents charged an average $76,633.
Other states with high costs included Alabama ($76,521), Tennessee ($77,724), Mississippi ($76) and South Carolina ($76).
Other studies have shown that the average annual cost of residency in internal medicine is higher than the average physician salary in the United States.
The American College of Physicians said in a statement that it “is proud of the work of our investigators who have identified barriers to entry for internal medicine and are working to eliminate those barriers.”
But the study doesn’t show the exact amount that internal health workers in Ohio and New Jersey spend on medical care.
The report noted that some doctors may be required to use more intensive care units than their peers in other states.
The researchers also noted that the cost of the median resident fee varies based on the jurisdiction, state and the health of the patient.
They also noted there are no national standards for the number of intensive care beds in the nation.
The AP reported that the AP examined a national database of internal health resident fees for all state, local and federal government departments and agencies, including Medicaid, Medicare, the Veterans Health Administration, Social Security and the U.S. Postal Service.
The number of fees paid varies widely from state to state.
A 2016 report from the Institute of Medicine, an independent, nonpartisan research arm of the U, found the median cost of a resident was $61,000 in 2017 in every state, and that the median annual fee paid was $74,000 nationwide.
The Institute of Medical Research found that the national average was $66,000 for all health care workers in 2018, and $80,000 nationally.
