I don't have in mind any ideal size of city. Maybe not too busy like new york though. As far as cultural diversity, I guess it would be a plus. I haven't even been to the US yet so I'm trying to get an idea. I will be visiting some parts soon though.

What about Philadelphia in Pennsylvania?

Thanks for your interest!
Lake Nona is a growing medical district in Orlando. Sanford-Burham Medical Research Institute, just opened its east coast campus there Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia . UCF's (3rd largest university in the nation) new medical school just opened up, two big new hospitals are under construction, and many more research institutes and schools are under way. The the biotech/medical field is growing tremendously in the Orlando area. A lot of opportunity

Also the areas climate is pretty much exactly what your looking for. The summers are humid with highs in the 80s and 90s (which can sometimes feel like 100's), and the winters are dry with lows in the 30s-50s and highs in the 60s-70s.

Its a medium sized metro of a little over 2 million, so not as busy as NYC.

Houston is also a great choice, they have the worlds largest medical center, and the climate is similar too.

An addition: Vanderbilt University in Nashville has a pretty high-ranked medical school, and Nashville is definitely livable on 44,000, though the city might not have as much to offer someone coming over from Europe.

Check out Lexington, KY and Cleveland, OH. Two cities with growing medical fields and very cheap costs of living.

with such a wide range of cities being suggested, it's quite clear that the OP will have to be a bit more specific. don't be afraid to ask exactly what you're looking for. you might just find it

Albuquerque, I believe the Med school at University of New Mexico is near the top... Albuquerque has a nice high-desert climate. Hot in summers, mild in winter but still chilly. Some snow. 4 seasons. And the mountains are gorgeous.. Just another town to consider.
