Program Summaries

Ohio - Cleveland
Cleveland Clinic Foundation Program
- The Facilities are top-notch, very evident that the hospital has a LOT of resources. The nicest hospital I have ever stepped foot in
- Residents seemed really approachable and fun
-Faculty that we met were also really personable and approachable
- Great research opportunities if you're into that
- Opportunities for extra nuc med training if that is what you're into
- LOTS of teaching opportunities within the hospital or formal lecture teaching at the medical school
- Can become part of the teaching faculty WHILE in residency if you spend at least 16 hours in an academic capacity
- Lots of perks associated with things to do around the area (occasional free/discounted activities and sports games)
- Given $750 every six months for food
- Constantly renovating and getting new equipment, so things always lookin tight
- The entire hospital is connected by skybridges so you never have to venture out into the harsh sunlight
- Cost of living in Cleveland is Low and has surprisingly good outdoors recreation

- No moonlighting. There are opportunities for external moonlighting but the program doesn't help at all and I didn't talk to a single resident that did it. PD actively discourages away/international rotations and moonlighting as "your time should be spent studying/teaching".
- Cleveland can be a negative depending on the person (I personally liked it a lot)
- Winter be bad
- Parking costs $60-70/ month but is in nice covered garages
"yes" but actively discouraged
