I would recommend Milwaukee simply because health care is now Milwaukee's largest industry and you can't go anywhere in the Milwaukee area without bumping into a Aurora Health Care -* Wisconsin hospitals, doctors and clinics. Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI, is a member of Children's Hospital and Health System - Home Page. clinic or hospital. Milwaukee has a ton of medical facilities like Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin Home. Wheaton Franciscan - The Wisconsin Heart Hospital. ProHealth Care. VMPCARES - The Village At Manor Park. Columbia St. Mary's. Medical College of Wisconsin. Aurora Sinai Medical Center of Aurora Health Care Metro, Inc.. VAMC Milwaukee, Wisconsin Home. Madison Medical. - Which is only located in Milwaukee but calls itself Madison Medical.

There are a lot of health care opportunities in Milwaukee and from experience. I had a relative who lived in the Twin Cities but could not find work up there for 6 months so she applied down here and had 8 job offers in under a month.


I don't know about madison except the UW Hospital.

Madison has three large medical systems: UW, which is the biggest, Meriter and St. Mary's/Dean. They are all very large systems and there is some collaboration between Meriter and UW. I do not know what the job market is in each of these places, but I was pretty amazed that the town could support 3 huge systems.

I think it's a toss-up for living expenses. If you like larger cities go with Milwaukee, if you prefer smaller then Madison.

Why not apply for jobs at both places and go with wherever you get the better offer?

Agreed.

In Milwaukee this little city rule applies more though. The rule of two.

Safe, Cheap. Convenient, you can only pick two.

Meaning for those MPS grads, if you chose safe & Cheap it won't be convenient where you live.

However, Walker's Point, Bay View, Eastern Tosa and Washington Heights are relativly close or what most people call close to downtown and convenient.

If you do get a job anywhere at the Regional medical center Tosa is the way to go.
