Advancing Expertise and Education in Anesthesiology
The study of anesthesiology provides a dynamic avenue of acquiring skill and knowledge. Clinicians in the field continually evaluate patients, prioritize their immediate medical problems in the context of their underlying conditions, and formulate anesthetic plans to enable them to safely proceed with whatever procedure awaits them.
Unlike some anesthesia training programs, where residents must rotate to other institutions to receive specialty training in obstetrics, pediatrics and cardiac anesthesia, the training program at University Hospitals of Cleveland provides intense exposure to these specialists. Moreover, as a major tertiary referral center, the institution receives transfers of many interesting and professionally challenging cases for evaluation and care. This truly enhances the clinical educational experience.
We offer a number of medical education opportunities for medical students, residents and fellows who wish to pursue a career in anesthesiology.
