The Master of Science in Anesthesia Program in Houston is located on Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center campus in the University of Texas Professional Building.
The MSA Offices
The program offices reside on the fourth floor of the University of Texas Professional Building. The building, which is connected to Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center by a sky bridge, allows MSA students easy access to the hospital for their clinical rotations.
The UT Professional Building is also home to several doctors’ offices, medical laboratories, and an anesthesia clinic where MSA students complete a month-long pre-operative rotation.
Our Learning Environments
Adjacent to the offices, the MSA Program has designated classroom space where didactic lectures and distance learning classes, which include the pharmacology and physiology coursework that MSA students complete with their peers in Cleveland and Washington, are held. The space also contains a student lounge and kitchenette, a computer bank, and a small library.
Additionally, the simulation laboratory and offices are housed in this space. The lab is maintained by our directors of simulation in Houston and certified anesthesiologist assistants, who oversee 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.
Additionally, students have access to the University of Texas Health Science Center Library, where the university’s health science and medical library are housed.
The CWRU MSA Program in Houston maintains a supervision agreement with Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and the University of Texas, under which we contract with a number of academically-affiliated physicians and certified anesthesiologist assistants within Memorial Hermann’s network.
The University of Texas is a key partner in our work, supporting our initiatives not only in terms of faculty and resources but also by providing healthcare access to our Houston students. Through the University of Texas, Houston students have access to the UT Health Center, which is located on the first floor of the UT Professional Building.
In addition to the physical resources available, Houston students can also access a number of digital resources at Case Western Reserve University using their network ID. Students have unlimited free access to Lynda.com and other resources, receive discounts on technology products from providers such as Apple and Dell through the eStore, and have complete access to the electronic database at the Kelvin Smith Library, which includes a vast collection of eJournals and eBooks.
