    I live in Maryland. There are alot of great hospitals in this area. There have alos been alot of recent salary upgrades here. There are some great teaching hospitals, like NIH only 10 miutes outside of DC and some great small hospitals like Suburban Hospital, down the street from NIH. I think Innova in VA is pretty good, but don't have any first hand experience. There are alot of exciting things happening in medicine in this part of the country. And it is a great place to live too! Salaries for new grads are about 17-19 per hour. The cost of living in DC is very expensive. Good Luck!
