Sacramento is the center of one of California’s fastest-growing regions. In addition to the obvious benefits of a rapidly expanding and diverse patient population, Sacramento is a highly livable city. The standard of living is higher and the cost of living is lower when compared with Los Angeles or San Francisco.
Sacramento is located near the northern end of California’s Central Valley, at the confluence of the Sacramento and American rivers. Although summers are hot and dry, cool Delta breezes temper the evenings. Snow-capped mountains are just two hours away by car. Ski resorts typically stay open from November through April.
World-class performances are showcased at the beautiful UC Davis Mondavi Center, located 20 minutes away on the UC Davis campus.
Sacramento is also surrounded by some of California’s most popular attractions: Lake Tahoe, the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Yosemite National Park, San Francisco, John Muir Woods, Carmel, Monterey Peninsula, and the “wine country” of the Napa and Sonoma valleys — all within easy driving.
