Why Colorado?

radio moutains

Colorado is one of the most wonderful places to live in the country, which is why 10,000 or so people move here each month. We feel incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to train at a top tier institution with a work-life balance that allows us to enjoy it all!

Outdoor Activities​

Denver looks onto the Front Range of the beautiful Rocky Mountains and boasts innumerable opportunities to be outside. Popular activities amongst our residents include hiking, biking, running, fishing, camping, and skiing. If you can’t find it in the city, a short drive will get you where you want to go for all these activities. Not feeling that adventuresome? With 300 days of sunshine a year you can enjoy the outdoors locally in one of the many public parks or outdoor spaces around town.

Public Transit

We’ll be honest: almost everyone in Denver owns a car and uses that as their primary mode of transportation. However, there are public transit options! The most commonly used options by our residents include the bus and light rail (for which we get a steep discount). The RTD transportation system operates 365 days a year and services North, East, Southeast, Southwest, and West Denver.  The Light Rail conveniently runs from the airport to the heart of downtown (Union Station), and also stops at the VA Hospital on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
