    Do most people tend to work in the same state as the medical school they attended? If so why?

    Interesting question.

    I, personally, plan on working in the Philadelphia area. Maybe not the city itself due to the malpractice costs, but around here.

    I think people choose which medical school to attend for a variety of different reasons. Cost, location, connections to certain hospitals, etc.

    You can most certainly attend medical school in one state and transfer to another and set up practice there.

    As far as my friends go, those who attended state schools seemed more likely to stay in that state to work...and they try to state in state for residency as well.

    Any other comments?
