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 are housed within the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in the Sears Tower, which is connected to University Hospital.
Our placement 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
Students have access to our simulation laboratory in Samson Pavillion located within the Health Education Campus. 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 the location of our lab in the Health Education Campus allows our students a space to be collaborate with medical, nursing, dental medicine, and physican assistant students to learn with and from each other.
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, student learning is supported by the Cleveland Health Sciences 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.
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.
