Child Neurology Residency Training Program Life in Boston

Boston is a medical paradise like no other, with three major medical schools and some two dozen hospitals. It’s also a fun place to live, with interesting people and unmatched cultural and recreational offerings.

Our town

Boston is a city of some twenty diverse and vibrant neighborhoods bordered by Cambridge and Brookline and tied together by a network of subway (“T”) and bus lines.

It boasts world-class museums, theater and music—the Longwood Medical Area even has its own orchestra. It’s also a legendary sports town where Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins players pay frequent visits to Boston Children’s patients.

Hiking and biking in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, skiing in New Hampshire or Vermont, touring the mansions of Newport, Rhode Island, exploring the rugged coast of Maine or relaxing on the beaches of Cape Cod are all within a couple of hour’s drive.

Lease Guarantee Program

Boston Children’s Hospital has implemented this program for all residents and fellows who are paid through the hospital to help ease the pressure of the high cost of housing in the Boston area. If a landlord requires advance payment of the last month’s rent and/or a security deposit, the hospital will guarantee payment according to the lease guaranty procedure. In return, the resident or fellow agrees to reimburse Boston Children’s for any payment the hospital makes. For more information, call the HR Employee Service Center at 617-355-7780.
