Mass General is located in the heart of Boston, a vibrant city rich in history and home to over 50 colleges and universities. The city is known for its winning sports teams and major cultural institutions. Boston is centrally located to major travel destinations such as Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard, and is in close proximity to several New England states.
Boston is a biomedical hub of innovation and home to some of the most prestigious hospitals and medical schools. The city is a rich environment for networking and offers abundant career opportunities after graduation. As one of the country’s best locations for health care services, Boston is a thriving healthcare market that affords professionals top-level healthcare job prospects.
I have lived in Boston for four years and continue to find new places to explore, new foods to try, interesting festivals/concerts to attend, and plenty of sports to watch. Boston offers a variety of activities for people with different interests...Although Boston is a city, it is extremely walkable and fun to explore since each neighborhood has its own charming architecture.
