Program Overview

Anesthesia is one of the most exciting and promising fields of medicine today. The practice of anesthesiology has undergone many changes including more diversification, which allows consultants to focus on sub-specialty areas that interest them most.

Cleveland Clinic South Pointe Hospital is a community-based hospital that features a state-of-the art surgery center with a 24-bed critical care unit. South Pointe Hospital is a regional branch of the Cleveland Clinic Health System. Our affiliations with Cleveland Clinic Main Campus and Akron Children's Hospital provide resident exposure to cardiac anesthesia, critical care, and pediatric anesthesia in all aspects. Our program enjoys a close-knit community atmosphere with the abundance of resources that the Cleveland Clinic Health System provides.

South Pointe Hospital provides residents and medical students with access to a full service medical library, skills lab and multiple conference rooms for education, meetings and individual study.

The Department of Anesthesiology is committed providing a comprehensive clinical and educational experience. The program will prepare you to deliver the best possible patient care in both the surgical suites and the critical care areas. Our faculty is well versed regarding the latest developments in medicine and treatment modalities.

 In addition to clinical teaching, educational opportunities include: anesthesia simulator training; weekly didactic lectures; journal clubs; and skills labs. Our residents have an outstanding record of passing the anesthesia board written and oral examinations. Our graduates are in high demand for clinical and academic positions upon completion of their residency.

We seek residents who are accomplished academically, possess strong work ethic and enthusiastic, and work well as part of a team. We encourage resident participation in scholarly activites and pursuit of additional fellowship training.
