Besides already mentioned Atlanta or Dallas you might consider Miami-Ft Lauderdale. Hospitals like U of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital, Mount Sinai Medical Center, Hollywood Memorial and Broward Medical Center should offer up good job options.

Not sure about average daily highs, but Philly's winters are definitely milder than Chicago's.

LA or SF would be best but you still need lots of cash.

Not sure if a 10 degree swing is what the OP had in mind, guessing probably not.

In winter, that can make a huge difference...even more when you consider average snowfall differences.

You need to look at not only gay friendly cities but cities that have growing health care potential. In my mind there are several that come to mind. Seattle and Portland but also Houston. Climate should be secondary as all these cities have positives and negative's depending on your preference.

I disagree, 34 and 24 are pretty similar, plus as stated the OP wants warmer. I don't think the OP is pining for 34 degree days...

You're basically describing Atlanta here.

Not that similar when you consider the precipitation factor. And it's not 34 degrees in Phily every single day. Outside of places like southern FL and CA, winter is winter and it gets cold.

As a native Southerner that has actually lived in metro Philly, the fall and winter seasons there aren't *too* bad, especially taking into account the effects of global warming. It was 70 degrees Christmas day in the Philly area last year. So depending on the OP's tolerance for colder weather, Philly could work. But my vote is still for Atlanta.
