Dear Prospective Applicant,
Thank you for your interest in Cleveland Clinic. Regardless of whether you are in a training program, another organization or a private practice in our region, you may have the opportunity to become a valued member of a very unique organization. Over 80 years ago, Cleveland Clinic established itself as an organization that was to pursue a unique model of delivering medical care. Over the decades, we have continued with that commitment of our founders.
In 2008, Cleveland Clinic embarked on a major reorganization of the organization structure for our clinical and academic practices. This move to an “institute” structure was an innovative step to align our departments under institutes that were patient and disease focused. This unique model has seen a significant amount of success and has been well received by patients as well as our staff.
You would join over 2,700 medical and scientific professionals on the Professional Staff. In addition, across the health system, over 40,000 employees join in the support of our clinical and scientific leaders in the pursuit of patient care, education and research. Our practice has grown to cover 7 states, as well as international operations in Canada and Abu Dhabi. Though this growth has been spectacular, we still strive to be a single organization that “Acts as a Unit."
The Board of Governors, Dr. Cosgrove and I encourage you to continue to explore how Cleveland Clinic may support you in the development of your practice and pursuit of your career goals.
Joseph F. Hahn, MD
Chief of Staff
- Cleveland Clinic is structured as a group practice. The doctors on staff are salaried employees and are not in private practice. They pool their wisdom and expertise for the benefit of the patient and the community.
- Our group practice model promotes seamless collaboration to achieve our guiding principle, “Patients First.” This allows us to offer patients top-notch care in the most cost-effective manner. We have no owners or stockholders; all revenues above costs are used to enhance clinical progress, improve patient services, and finance capital projects, research and education.
