According to data released by the Association of American Medical Colleges, the number of residents and fellows in ACGME-accredited programs increased by nearly 15,000 or 14.4% between 2004 and 2014. During this time only Hawaii saw a decrease, losing 44 residents and fellows.

Every state had at least one ACGME-accredited GME program in 2014, but the number of residents and fellows in those programs per 100,000 population varied greatly from state to state. Massachusetts had the most at 81.7 residents and fellows per 100,000. Meanwhile Alaska ranked the lowest with just 4.9, well below the national average of 36.9.
