Clinical Training

We value a hands-on, real-world experience for our MD students. Because of that, we aim to provide an experience that allows you to practice skills learned in the classroom using technology and by engaging in patient interaction.

Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine is proudly affiliated with four of the best teaching hospitals in the region and the nation: Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth, VA Northeast Ohio Healthcare System, and University Hospitals. We partner with each of these institutions to conduct medical research and educate tomorrow's leading physicians and medical professionals.

The School of Medicine is also linked to the Cleveland community through our Urban Health Initiative and Student-Run Health Clinic. Both programs allow you to engage with underserved populations by providing healthcare and education in the city we call home.

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