Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine

of Case Western Reserve University



Welcome to Cleveland Clinic

All students are required to attend an administrative orientation on the first day of their scheduled rotation. 
The "when and where to report" information and campus map are provided with the confirmation letter of appointment prior to your start date.

Orientation is generally scheduled in the Lerner Building, Education wing, located on the corner of E. 100th Street and Carnegie Avenue.

Please park in any of the visitor garages on main campus. If you've been assigned housing for your rotation, you may pick up your room key after noon on the Sunday prior to your start date.

ID Badge

An identification badge will be issued to you after your orientation. You must wear your ID badge at all times at Cleveland Clinic.

If you leave the premises and return late, you must have your ID badge with you so you can regain admittance to campus buildings.

Lab Coats

White coats are issued on your first day. When your lab coat becomes soiled, take it to the Uniform Room (located in the basement of the TT building) and exchange it. The Uniform Room service hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Cleveland Clinic uses a uniform exchange program. Upon proper authorization you will receive a specified number of scrubs that you may exchange, when soiled, on a one-to-one basis during your rotation.

You will be issued your O.R. scrubs from the Uniform Room. If your scrubs are not returned at the end of your visit, you will be charged for their cost. 

Dress Code

All students are expected to dress in a professional manner. T-shirts, cut-offs, etc., are not allowed. We recommend you wear comfortable shoes.
