Class Leaders

Case Western Reserve University Master of Science in Anesthesia students with sign reading American Society of Anesthesiology

For more than fifteen years, the Master of Science in Anesthesia Program at Case Western Reserve University has offered second-years the opportunity to take on leadership roles in Cleveland, Houston, and Washington. These roles include student chiefs; student representatives to the American Academy of Anesthesiologist Assistants and legislative advocates to the American Society of Anesthesiologists; biomedical graduate student organization representatives; and legislative advocates.

The number of student leaders varies by year and, depending on the location, students may either be nominated by the faculty or elected by their peers.

These leadership roles exemplify the importance of advocacy at Case Western Reserve University, and are key opportunities for future anesthetists to have a voice in their professional organizations and to network with leaders across the field and colleagues across the School of Medicine.
