Medical student education, teaching the next generation of physicians, is at the core of our mission at University Hospitals. With a rich history of academic innovation, exemplary patient care and research excellence, University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center is proud to provide a wide range of medical student education opportunities. As a major affiliate of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, our faculty are dedicated to teaching the science of health and the art of compassion. Our diverse patient population and highly specialized clinical expertise provide a robust teaching environment for comprehensive medical education opportunities.
UH Cleveland Medical Center offers core medical school clerkships to 3rd year medical students from only Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) and Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED). Students from these respective institutions should contact their registrar about rotating at University Hospitals.
