Program Overview

Anesthesia is one of the most exciting and promising fields of medicine today. The practice of anesthesiology is diverse, with consultant anesthesiologists practicing in the operating room as generalists, cardiac anesthesiologists, and pediatric anesthesiologists; in labor & delivery, managing labor pain and obstetric surgery; as well as in pain management clinics, both acute and chronic.

Residents in our program find their home at South Pointe Hospital, a Cleveland Clinic hospital. This is a 173 bed acute care community teaching hospital featuring state-of-the-art surgery suites and a 24 bed critical care unit. The clinical training at South Pointe Hospital is superb, with exposure to a wide-variety of cases across most specialty domains. Our residents gain cardiac anesthesia and critical care experience at the main campus of Cleveland Clinic, ranked first in the nation for cardiac care since 1995 by US News and World Report. The pediatric anesthesia rotation occurs at Akron Children’s Hospital, which is ranked among the best children’s hospitals in the country, and its unique approach to compassionate pediatric care creates an excellent atmosphere for trainees. Regional anesthesia training at Cleveland Clinic community hospitals provides exposure to high volume practice in peripheral nerve blockade and acute pain management. Multiple electives are available for additional training in the final year to focus on subspecialty anesthesia, as well as trauma, teaching or global health endeavors. For those interested, research experience is readily available.

The Department of Anesthesiology is committed to providing a comprehensive clinical and educational experience. The hospital provides residents and medical students with access to a full service medical library, on-site skills lab, and multiple conference rooms for education, meetings and individual study. Educational opportunities include: simulator training, weekly didactic lectures, monthly journal clubs, and quarterly skills labs. We encourage resident participation in scholarly activities and provide support for presentations at regional and national meetings. Residents have a 100% pass rate for the anesthesia board examinations, and graduates are in high demand for clinical, academic, and fellowship positions upon completion of residency.

We seek residents who are accomplished academically, possess a strong work ethic, enthusiastic, and work well in a team environment. Please follow the audition rotation tab for information regarding how to request a 2-week audition rotation.
