Named Chairs of Cleveland Clinic

Established through a philanthropic commitment, named chairs can provide an annual source of income to enable the holder to investigate new treatments or pioneer research to benefit patients at Cleveland Clinic and beyond. Chairs also are used to enhance education programs, promote collaboration and allow the holder to explore initiatives that may not otherwise be possible. Named chairs are a vital tool for attracting, retaining and rewarding the very best medical professionals. They’re also highly coveted and awarded to only the most talented, experienced and accomplished physicians and researchers.
