The Master of Science in Anesthesia Program in Cleveland is located on Case Western Reserve University’s main campus.

The MSA Offices

The program offices reside in the Lakeside wing of University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, which is connected to the School of Medicine and sits adjacent to the Kent Smith Quad on the southside of campus.

The offices are housed within the University Hospital Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine department on the second floor of Lakeside.

Our placement within the hospital emphasizes our partnership with University Hospital, and allows our students easy access to operating rooms, surgery centers, and libraries. The MSA students also have a lounge within the hospital where they can relax during their rotations and study.

Our Learning Environments

Within UH, students have access to our simulation laboratory. The lab is maintained by anesthesiologists, who direct and operate the simulations. Designed to look and feel like an operating room, the lab experience allows students to hone their anesthesia care techniques through participation in real-world scenarios. The lab is a central component of our curriculum, and is also used as a collaborative space with the UH residency program.

Didactic lectures take place in classrooms in the School of Medicine and in The Iris S. and Burt L. Wolstein Research Building. Within the School of Medicine, students have access to the Health Science Library and graduate study center, spaces specifically designed to provide resources for and aid in the advanced study of medicine and healthcare. Our distance learning classroom, where students complete their pharmacology and physiology coursework with their peers in Houston and Washington, is located in Wolstein.

Additionally, students have access to the Kelvin Smith Library, where the university’s main collection is housed, and the Dittrick Medical History Center. 

Main Campus

The main campus of Case Western Reserve University is located five miles east of Downtown Cleveland. The university, which straddles Euclid Avenue, is comprised of eight schools, the Office of Undergraduate Studies, and the School of Graduate Studies. The university offers nearly 135 graduate and professional options and 140 dual-degree programs, and is home to more than 100 interdisciplinary academic and research centers and institutes.

The surrounding neighborhood is known as University Circle, which is one of the most impressive concentrations of healthcare, education, and arts and cultural institutions in the country. The 550 park-like acres are home to the Cleveland Orchestra, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Botanical Garden, the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, as well as the university itself, University Hospital Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center and more.

CWRU students have a number of benefits they can enjoy on campus and throughout the city, including annual campus events, symposiums, and lectures. Students are automatically enrolled in the free access program, which allows students to visit selected museums one time per week with their valid student ID. Students are also able to purchase discount passes for public transportation and discounted tickets for movies or events at the Quicken Loans Arena, and Cedar Point.
