UH is a program looking to innovate and make our mark on the field. With a youthful faculty hailing from programs around the nation, we have opportunities in nearly every subspecialty, from EMS to pediatric emergency medicine, critical care to sports medicine, point-of-care ultrasound to toxicology. A diverse clinical experience and engaging conference sessions combine to prepare our graduates as expert diagnosticians, master resuscitationists, and skilled advocates. Our community of trainees practices at a busy urban Level 1 trauma center as well as suburban regional medical centers and rural Level 3 hospitals, ensuring they are prepared for a fulfilling, lifelong career in emergency medicine.

Cleveland is the ideal city for a resident, offering all the amenities of a large U.S. city while maintaining a low cost of living. Some of America’s top cultural attractions are a short walk from the hospital, including the Cleveland Museum of Art and Severance Hall, home to the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra. Downtown, you will find the second-largest theater district in the country and a prominent sports scene with three professional teams. To get outside, visit the Cuyahoga Valley National Park only 45 minutes away and the Cleveland Metroparks, or “Emerald Necklace,” spanning more than 23,700 acres and 300 miles of trails including multiple parks on Lake Erie, one of the few places in the Midwest where you can surf.
