Kingston is a vibrant and beautiful waterfront city that is perfectly situated half-way between Toronto and Montreal. The city’s rich history is continually evolving, offering a wealth of opportunity and activities for rheumatologists and their families.

Kingston boasts 45 unique neighborhoods, each with their own unique character and appeal. From bustling downtown scenes, to the historic and primarily residential Alwington neighbourhood, you can find a place to live that aligns with your lifestyle and family goals.

Kingston is home to both Queens University and the Royal Military College. Queens’ largest affiliated teaching hospital, Kingston General Hospital, a National Historic Site, is the oldest operating public hospital in Canada, and is home to a staff of over 2000.

Kingston has been recognized as one of the top five best places to live in Canada as a young professional in a recent study by Next Generation Consulting based on earning potential, cost of living, and after-hours activities. Both Toronto and Montreal are well-connected by air, rail, and major highways; each is a 2.5-3 hour drive away depending on traffic.
