Cleveland Clinic Nevada hosts a robust education program that starts at the elementary school level with field trips to the center’s Frank Gehry-designed campus (“It’s such a cool building!”) and outreach to middle and high school classrooms. At the college level, students with interests in medicine, neuroscience, bioengineering and related fields participate in more intensive summer internships that include clinical rotations, case presentations and scientific journal review.
Mentoring the Next Generation
Seventy percent of trainees stay in the city in which they complete their graduate medical education (GME). Given the need for more medical providers in Las Vegas, Cleveland Clinic Nevada is serving an important role in Las Vegas for medical residents who, having completed four years of medical school, are training in their chosen specialties.
Aaron Ritter, MD, started in 2014 as Cleveland Clinic Nevada’s first behavioral neurology fellow; in 2016, upon completion of his training, he joined as a staff neuropsychiatrist. Subsequently, Cleveland Clinic Nevada has established fellowships in neuropsychology and multiple sclerosis. We’re always proud of those who become colleagues in our local community, as have alumni of our behavioral neurology and neuropsychology programs. Aspiring medical professionals can learn more about training at Cleveland Clinic Nevada.
