Austin — Physicians add opportunity, growth, and prosperity to the Texas economy by creating 670,172 jobs and generating $117.9 billion in state economic activity, according to a new report, The Economic Impact of Physicians in Texas, released by the Texas Medical Association (TMA) and the American Medical Association (AMA).

“Everyone knows, whether in small towns or large cities, Texas doctors care for our communities’ health, but this study shows those same physicians are vital to the economic health of those cities, towns, and Texas as a whole,” said Carlos J. Cardenas, MD, TMA president. “Texas physicians truly improve the health of Texans, but clearly also improve the health of Texas’ growing economy. It is remarkable.”

The study quantifies the boost that Texas’ 51,333 active patient care physicians provide to the state’s economy, producing a ripple effect that is felt statewide. The study measures physicians’ impact using four key economic indicators:

  • Jobs: Physicians support 670,172 total jobs in Texas —13.1 jobs for each physician on average.
  • Economic activity: Physicians generate $117.9 billion in economic output, comprising 7.3 percent of the Texas economy. Each physician generates $2.3 million for the local and state economy on average.
  • Wages and benefits: Physicians contribute $55.4 billion in total wages and benefits paid to workers across Texas, empowering a high-quality, sustainable workforce. Each physician contributes $1.1 million to workers’ wages and benefits on average.

State and local tax revenue: Physicians’ contribution to the Texas economy generates $3.5 billion in state and local tax revenue for their communities — translating to $68,599 in tax revenue paid for each physician on average — helping to pay for our schools, roads, criminal justice system, and health care services for all Texans.
