SCVMC is centered in the heart of Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. Most of our residents reside in nearby cities in Santa Clara County, with some living in San Francisco and Palo Alto. The Bay Area is often described as one of the best places to live in the country, and San Francisco has been declared “the happiest and healthiest city” in the US by Huffington Post. With the beaches of Santa Cruz, the mountains of Big Sur, the culture and activities of the Bay Area, and the culinary experiences of Napa Valley just an hour away, it is an ideal place to train. In a nutshell, the Bay Area is multicultural, intellectual and a haven for outdoor and culinary adventures!
