Chairman’s Message

James Rowbottom

Chair, James Rowbottom, MD

Anesthesiology involves rapid integration and application of medical knowledge to solve patients’ problems. Therefore, it’s absolutely essential that we give our residents the tools with which they can solve any problems they may face in the future. University Hospitals of Cleveland provides an environment where teaching and learning exist in a true community of academicians.

The faculty here take an active approach to didactics. Our basic science courses are part of the curriculum of Case Western Reserve University’s Graduate School. Our monthly journal club, biweekly resident rounds, monthly anesthesia research conference, and weekly conferences reinforce operating room techniques. Special seminars provide residents with the forum to discuss ethics and medicine and other intricate subjects often overlooked in resident training programs.

University Hospitals of Cleveland offers all subspecialties, to enhance the learning experience. Each month, residents examine a different subspecialty to guarantee their progression through all aspects of the field.

Anesthesiology is not a slow-moving specialty; it involves split second decisions affecting patients’ lives. Our residents manage cases after consultation with faculty members. Residents and faculty interact as colleagues. Our aim is to maintain high levels of expertise, both professionally and personally.
