Houston Medical Live Center
From the spacious apartments, to the world's largest Medical Center, and Livestock Show and Rodeo, Houston certainly lives up to its reputation. Houston has one of the youngest, diverse populations, as well as cheapest cost of living in the U.S. On your days off from studying, visit Discovery Green Park for a kayak boat ride, Saturday Yoga sessions, or Summer Salsa dancing. Hungry? The city is also a foodies' dream, with over 11,000 restaurants of seemingly infinite cuisines to sample. Yes, you'll be busy alright...busy enjoying life.
Top 5 things to do:
- Visit the Museum of Fine Arts, showcasing famous work like the Menil Collection.
- Meditate at the Rothko Chapel, a sanctuary for anyone looking for solitude and tranquility.
- Visit the Museum of Natural Science, and catch a movie at the IMAX theater.
- Shop at the Houston Galleria, the 4th largest indoor mall in the nation.
- Explore Rice Village, just blocks away from Kaplan, for an array of shops, spas, restaurants, and pubs.
The Texas Medical Center, the world's largest group of medical institutions and associations, is located within miles of Kaplan. This access provides a multitude of opportunities for our USMLE candidates for research positions, observerships, externships, and, ultimately, residency positions.
