The Midwest may be the best place for physicians to practice to avoid burnout and stress, according to a ranking by Medscape. The ranking lists the best cities for physicians and the top four are located in the Midwest: Minneapolis, Minnesota; Madison, Wisconsin; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and Des Moines, Iowa. The ranking was based on several factors believed to contribute to burnout, including the rates of medical board actions and malpractice lawsuits, physician density, income, insurance coverage, divorce rates, and cost of living.

Rounding out the top 10 cities are Burlington, Vermont; Manchester, Hampshire; Boston; Fargo, North Dakota; Portland, Maine; and Overland Park, Kansas. The worst cities were New Orleans, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, and Tulsa.
