Clinical Training

At Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, we value a hands-on, real world experience for our students. We aim to provide an experience that allows students to practice the skills they are learning in the classroom through technology and patient interaction.

We are proudly affiliated with four of the best teaching hospitals in the region and the nation: University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth and the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center. Each of these institutions serves as an extension of our medical research and education by preparing the leading physicians and medical professionals of tomorrow.

The School of Medicine is also linked to the Cleveland community through our Urban Health Initiative and our Student-Run Free Clinic. Both of these programs allow our students to engage with the local underserved population by providing health care and education in the city we call home.

Students also can hone their skills through the Mt. Sinai Skills and Simulation Center and in clinical core rotations. The simulation center is an education and training facility focused on creative, innovative continuous learning for health care providers and professionals at all levels, including our students. In clinical core rotations, students will not only gain experience in many areas of health and disease, but they will also address the roles of basic science, civic professionalism, scholarship and population health in clinical care.
