Located on the beautiful California coastline, Santa Barbara (70 miles north of Los Angeles) is a red-tiled roofed town that is often described as the 'American Riviera.' With pristine beaches, palm tree lined streets, sophisticated shopping, exquisite cuisine and art, Santa Barbara offers both a cultural and natural beauty like no other place on earth. Every corner of this town offers the best of the best where every day feels like a vacation.

Resident Accommodations
Every MP Health Resident will be immersed in a cultural experience of a lifetime by living with local host families that are friendly and excited to welcome you into their homes; many of which, are hosts that are either associated with or employed by MP Health. Home cooked meals and time with your host family will play a daily role in your residency experience as well. And in a town where there are over 300 days of sunshine a year, you will have the opportunity to explore the magic of Santa Barbara, its coastline and the numerous cultural and outdoor activities that it offers each and every weekend.
