Residency Spotlight: Cleveland Clinic Akron General

What does your program offer that residents can’t get anywhere else?

We are the first community emergency medicine program in the country. Residents train at an academic Level I trauma center and several freestanding emergency departments (EDs). We offer innovative ultrasound training, which includes nerve blocks in the ED, and annually participate in SAEM Sonograms. We even offer an ultrasound rotation for medical students. We also have a unique geographic location, low cost of living, a national park, and the city of Cleveland is 30 minutes away. We are celebrating our 50th year!

What are some fun activities residents like to partake in or recently participated in?

Annual Wilderness Night at a faculty member’s house to discuss Mt Kilimanjaro trip, and Wilderness Medicine hikes through Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP). We also hosted a welcome party for our intern class at the Rubber Ducks baseball game. Our Annual Chili Cook-Off is coming up in the fall!
