No I am not, while impressive even on the medical front Baltimore is still miles behind Boston, actually still very far behind Philadelphia in this regard. Yes Hopkins is an amazing place no doubt and Univ of MD Med Center is good but compared to the research, hospitals etc in the Boston area (even Philly is heads and shoulders above Baltimore in this regard which is no sloutch) are just vastly larger on scale driven by research, great hospitals, and numerous excellent educational institutions. Also Boston while Life Sciences is at the forefront is more pioneering in research overall. I do see a brighter future Baltimore honestly but in this regard i have trouble seeing Baltimore closing the research gap Boston has developed. There may be as much research going on in Kendall Sq as in the whole Baltimore area.

I've seen this list before with the same cities... perhaps it has come out on more than one source.
