About Dallas

Dallas prides itself on its friendly culture, entrepreneurial spirit, flair for style and innovation, and outstanding quality of life.  It is the ninth largest city in the United States with more than 1.2 million residents in just over 300 square miles.  Combined with Fort Worth, it forms the fourth largest metropolitan area, allowing for diversity in its population and range of activities.

Culture and creativity flourish in the largest arts district in the nation, now complete with a new concert hall, theater, and art museum that feature national exhibits and off-Broadway shows.  Residents can enjoy the best shopping in the southwest according to USA Today at the Galleria Mall, and feast on many four and five star restaurants throughout the city.  Dallas is also home to professional sports teams including the Mavericks, Texas Rangers, Cowboys, and Stars.

Living in Dallas is made easy by its moderate weather, competitive cost of living, and highly diversified economy with 18 area businesses named as Fortune 500 companies (including Exxon Mobil, Southwest Airlines, and Texas Instruments).  It is also centrally located with two large airports that can take you nearly anywhere in North America within 4 hours.  Within the DFW metroplex, we have a public transportation system called DART, which now has a stop at the hospital for easy access to our residents and faculty.
