The Top 10 Most In-Demand States for Gastroenterologists

It is a wonderful time to be a gastroenterologist, as nationwide demand has continued peaking over the past year. In fact, as reported in the AMN Healthcare 2022 Review of Physician and Advance Practitioner Incentives, Gastroenterology ranked first in “absolute demand” for provider specialties in patient care and saw a $33,000 increase in average salary year over year from 2021.

With increased demand across the country, we wanted to help our gastroenterologists zero in on some of the topmost in-demand states for permanent placement opportunities.

Top Gastroenterology Job Destinations

1. New York

Put yourself in a New York state of mind with gastroenterology opportunities spanning from the city that never sleeps to its rustic upstate hideaways. You can experience winter magic in a bustling urban backdrop or cozy up beside a scenic landscape away from it all on your next assignment. 

2. Ohio

The Midwest can make a perfect next stop in your gastroenterology career, with Ohio offering a plethora of opportunities in friendly and welcoming communities. Between its major cities Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, and its quaint suburban neighborhoods, Ohio has something for everyone’s taste.

Everything is bigger in the Lone Star State, including opportunities for gastroenterologists. Experience an abundance of culture and attractions that only Texas can offer, from its vibrant metropolises—Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio—to its expansive (and relatively unknown) natural wonders on your next assignment. 

4. California

If you’ve ever dreamed of exploring beaches, mountains, lakes, and scenic desert all in one place, then California might be your dream destination. With jobs in cultural hubs like San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, and everywhere in between, The Golden State offers golden opportunity for gastroenterologists looking for an assignment. 

5. Kentucky

Perhaps New England’s most unsung hero, Maine provides a picturesque, relaxing refuge for gastroenterologists seeking a new home.

7. Wisconsin

Milwaukee Waterfront Wisconsin

Situated between two Great Lakes and gorgeous forests and farmlands, this Midwest haven can make for a perfect home this winter. Take in the culture of the state’s largest city, Milwaukee, or explore its warm small-town communities on your next gastroenterology assignment. 

8. Michigan

The Land of 1000 Lakes adds a whole new meaning to lake life—but Michigan has so much more to offer. From Detroit, its diverse and bustling metropolis, to historic Mackinac Island, and beyond, Michigan provides ample opportunities, to both explore and elevate your gastroenterology career. 

9. Georgia
