Letter from the Program Director

Welcome to the Cleveland Clinic South Pointe Hospital Department of Anesthesiology Residency Program!

The anesthesia residency program is designed to accelerate the growth of our resident physicians to become successful and compassionate anesthesiologists. At South Pointe Hospital, we are dedicated to providing residents with an outstanding clinical training experience in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. We have an outstanding faculty, and we pride ourselves on fostering a collegial environment throughout the institution.

South Pointe Hospital has been training osteopathic physicians for over 60 years, and we are pleased to note that the anesthesiology residency program has received both ACGME accreditation and Osteopathic Recognition.

Entry into the categorical four-year program is via ERAS and NRMP at the PGY1 level. The residency program consists of 12 residents (three per year) that enables a high level of personal attention. The clinical experience begins with a base clinical skills year, with rotations in the intensive care unit, pediatrics, obstetrics, and three months of anesthesiology. In the CA1 – C3 years, at South Pointe and through affiliations with Cleveland Clinic Main Campus, Cleveland Clinic Regional Hospitals, and Akron Children’s Hospital, our residents gain experience in all the subspecialties. Because of the small size of our residency and access to an abundance of resources that only the Cleveland Clinic Health System can provide, we are able to customize the customize the residency experience and tailor the senior rotations to the interests of the resident. At Cleveland Clinic South Pointe Hospital, residents are not only trained in the latest anesthesia techniques, but are guided and encouraged to reach their full potential both professionally and personally.

From the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, to world-renowned restaurants, and numerous professional sports teams including the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Cleveland Browns, and the Cleveland Guardians, Cleveland offers a thriving cultural and entertainment scene. For those who prefer the great outdoors, the Cleveland Metroparks are an extensive system of nature preserves, which include over 300 miles of hiking, bicycle, and horse trails. The city of Cleveland is enjoying renewed growth and popularity, but still it maintains a reasonable cost of living, allowing residents to have well-rounded and balanced lives.

Thank you for your interest in our program. Please contact our Graduate Medical Education office if you have additional questions or to schedule an audition rotation.
