I want to change the world. And by that I mean I want to make it so that when your medical student/resident/fellow says, "I really liked the residency program/fellowship program/job opportunity in Anytown, USA" you don't have to rely on the Wikipedia page for Anytown, USA. (Although those demographics are downright thrilling.)
Coming soon: city guides put together by the medical spouses that live there.
Want to contribute? There's a few ways!
1. Maybe you want to highlight a part of your city that you really love?
2. Or take us on a tour of your city?
3. Or, you can fill out the city guide survey below, attach a few pictures, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org!
