We offer focused training in all areas of anesthesia, including clinical regional anesthesia, with mandatory and elective rotations at more than 80 esteemed, affiliate hospitals across the nation.

2. Location

With locations in Cleveland, Houston, and Washington, the Master of Science in Anesthesia Program at Case Western Reserve University is the only program with a national reach. East Coast, Heartland, or the Sunshine Belt—each offers the same great CWRU education with a location for everyone.

3. Reputation

Not only is the Master of Science in Anesthesia Program at Case Western Reserve University one of the oldest programs in the country, but it's housed in a top 25 School of Medicine in the United States as ranked by U.S. News & World Report.

4. Job Placement

Nearly 100% of our students have job offers at the time of graduation, with many receiving offers in the fall of their second year. Our May graduation allows our students to be in the marketplace before other MSA programs' graduates, meaning our students generally experience a better selection of jobs—and start earning sooner!
