    E.R. is set in Chicago not Seattle, the fictional worlds of TV doctor dramas have little to do with real life practice of medicine.

    Before you look for a place to practice your residency, you should look at medical schools; graduating at the front of your class from a top ranked medical school will ensure a residency at one of "the best" hospitals. See the link below for the US News & World Report ranking of schools.

    Rating hospitals gets a little trickier. Generally, the top five names in hospitals are Mass General, Johns Hopkins, the Cleveland clinic, Duke university and the Mayo Clinic. But, hospitals are ranked according to specialty, so if you are looking for a top ranked cardiac hospital, the list will be different than say a top ranked pediatric hospital and so on.

    See the second link below for the US News & World report ranking of hospitals by specialty.

    Well, I'm not sure about the location of the best hospital in America, but I don't think it matters. If you want to be a surgeon in the future, you should be a surgeon to help people no matter where the hospital is.
