Living in Toledo

Downtown Toledo at night

Toledo is located in northwest Ohio near the shores of western Lake Erie. A diverse population of 600,000 people lives and works in the Toledo metropolitan area. The city has long been known for its auto manufacturing and glass industry. It now also has a growing reputation as a great place to start a career and make a home. There are many reasons to come to Toledo. Toledo is a beautiful town with sprawling suburbs, beautiful parks and a newly rejuvenated downtown area. 

Toledo is home to the famous Mud Hens baseball team and the world-renowned Toledo Museum of Art. There are many family-owned restaurants that have been around for decades and recently opened farm-to-table restaurants as well. 

Further benefiting our program is the presence of The University of Toledo, one of just 27 public research universities in the country to offer a comprehensive menu of academic options – more than 230 undergraduate and graduate degree programs across the arts, business, education, engineering, law, medicine, nursing and pharmacy. In fact, many of our fellows take advantage of the fact that University offers fellows and residents free admission into the Masters of Public Health (MPH) program. UToledo is ranked among the top 100 public universities in the latest Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education Rankings. We also share a close relationship with the UToledo College of Medicine and regularly interact with residents and student in the academic, research and clinical settings.

Places to have fun around Toledo:

Apart from the Museum of Art and Toledo Zoo, there are many places to have fun with family and friends. Cedar point is one of the best rollercoaster and water park and is only 45 minutes away. African Safari, Put-in-Bay, and Kelley islands are ideal for a weekend getaway or a day trip and are 45 minutes away. There are many Bowling alleys, laser tag places, Go-karting places, and trampoline parks to blow off a tired week with friends.  

Places to live in Toledo:

There are many safe and pristine neighborhoods to live in at 10-20 minutes distance from the hospitals. The suburbs where most fellows and residents live include Sylvania, Perrysburg, Maumee, Reynolds Corner, Ottawa hills, and Oregon. These suburbs are full of apartment complexes and houses. The rent is affordable, and parking is free at most places. For a two-bedroom apartment rent can vary from 750-1100 dollars depending on location. Some residents and fellows live in Downtown Toledo to enjoy the access to restaurants. New apartment complexes like Tower on Maumee provide safe and comfortable living for people looking to live in a tall-rising complex.
