When it comes to starting your healthcare career, location matters.

Learning in a sophisticated healthcare city means more opportunities for shadowing, more volunteering, more clinical experiences, more research and so on.

A top healthcare community means you learn under some of the nation’s foremost practitioners, in hospitals that utilize advanced technology and employ research-based best practices.

Cleveland, home to Case Western Reserve University, is the kind of place where you’ll want to start your future in healthcare.

Our campus is within one mile of three major medical hospitals. Through our partnerships with these and other medical facilities, our students hone their skills and learn from some of the country’s leading practitioners and scientists.
