Bay Area


Interns and Residents enjoy living and working in the beautiful San Francisco Bay area, a region with tremendous cultural resources, natural beauty and outstanding quality of life.

The City of Oakland has a strong neighborhood character, cultural diversity and beautiful views of the bay and Lake Merritt, as well as miles of hiking/biking trails in the coastal hills. San Francisco's museums, symphony, opera and ballet are just minutes away by bridge or tunnel (Bay Area Rapid Transit).

The rugged Pacific Ocean coastline is a short drive from here, while the beautiful Napa and Sonoma Valley wine regions lie just one hour to the north. Two hours south is the Monterey Peninsula, and beyond that lies Big Sur. Lake Tahoe ski resorts, Yosemite Valley and the rest of the beautiful Sierra Nevada are just three hours away.
