Certainly, SAS is the package that is most widespread in medicine (at least in Europe). But Stata is becoming more and more accepted among epidemiological/ public health researchers. Just check the top-notch journals (as measured by the impact factor ;) ) and you will find a lot of papers using Stata (eg, Jama, 2006,295(6):676-80).
Two minutes on the JAMA site gave the following information: in full text articles since 1992, mention of specific statistical packages is as follows:

SAS: 974 papers
Stata: 287 papers
SPSS; 246 papers
Other packages (SPlus, Statistica, Egret, NCSS, JMP) 20 each or fewer
