The Master of Science in Anesthesia Program in Houston is located in the Campanile East building, just blocks from the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center campus.
The MSA Offices
The program occupies Suites 100 and 150 at 4203 Montrose Boulevard on the first floor of Campanile East, which offers a walkable neighborhood and easy access to the hospital for clinical rotations.
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 Master of Science in Anesthesia 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, and the UT anesthesia clinic, where students complete a month-long pre-operative rotation.
CWRU faculty and staff are working diligently to provide courses in modalities that will enable all students to continue to move toward completing their degree and achieving their academic goals. Regardless of the learning environment, the tuition and fees will be the same. The tuition and fees are in exchange for learning, academic credit, and certain non-academic services that will be provided whether in person, in a hybrid environment, or entirely remotely, and tuition and fees amounts will remain the same in the event the mode of course delivery changes during the semester.
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 several 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.
