The St. Louis region is consistently ranked among the nation’s most affordable and best places to live and raise families and offers many opportunities to participate in or watch a wide range of recreational activities, cultural events, and sports. It has a population of nearly 3 million and is the 18th largest metropolitan region in the United States. St. Louis is one of the Midwest’s key cultural destinations, boasting an abundance of museums, music and theatre venues, sporting events, family-friendly activities, and shopping and fine dining districts.
The 164-acre medical campus of Washington University School of Medicine, including St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Barnes-Jewish Hospital, is located in the Central West End, an eclectic and vibrant district of St. Louis. Located just north of Forest Park in the central corridor of the city, the Central West End is known for its wide array of restaurants and sidewalk cafes, specialty shops, boutiques, art galleries, and bookstores. Many fellows reside in apartments or lofts in the Central West End within walking distance or a short Metrorail ride from the hospital, while others, particularly those with families, choose to live in surrounding suburbs.
