Quality of life is becoming a scarce commodity. More and more physicians are looking to the Fargo/Moorhead region to raise their families. Fargo and our sister city, Moorhead, MN (with a combined population of 200,000) enjoy a friendly, "country-politan" atmosphere that is truly unique. We have the amenities of a much larger community with few of the drawbacks. Our medical community is one of the largest in the upper Midwest between Minneapolis and the West Coast.
Fargo/Moorhead offers: •Low crime rate •Excellent parks system •Low congestion •Clean air. •Two state universities •A private liberal arts college •Award winning public school systems •Cultural diversity with Thirty-six art organizations •Hunting and Fishing near by •Relax at our nearby Minnesota lakes.
