College of Medicine

Northeast Ohio Medical University's Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree curriculum is designed to develop the characteristics that people want to see in their physicians: competence, communication, caring, curiosity, character, and a commitment to community. 

NEOMED Partnership Admission Pathways

College and University Partnership Pathways – New for 2016 - 2017

Exciting new provisional admission pathways leading to an M.D. are coming to NEOMED in collaboration with our college and university Partners this admission cycle. While NEOMED sunsets the Accelerated 2+4 B.S./M.D. pathway following this 2016-2017 application cycle, there will be more admission pathways available than ever before with our Partners. Interested candidates enrolled at one of NEOMED’s six undergraduate partner institutions may secure their reserved seat in medical school awaiting them upon completion of their provisional admission requirements.  Explore the right pathway for you.

All potential candidates that have an interest in the NEOMED College of Medicine are encouraged to open a personal information portal at Discover.neomed.edu.  Regardless of pathway, application to medical school involves a rigorous process of evaluation focused on the mission of the Medical College. Candidates will be expected to comply autonomously with many deadlines and details to complete the application process. Regardless of the pathway chosen, admission to medical school is always a competitive process where the number of qualified applicants far exceeds the number of M.D. seats available. The application eligibility guidelines listed below are the minimum requirements we suggest for candidates to consider making application. It is rare that candidates in a competitive admission process are admitted with the minimum qualifications.

Candidates are solely responsible for meeting all deadlines and submitting all credentials according to instructions and maintaining contact information for notices and updates. In general, the application process to medical school occurs over the course of several months. Interested candidates are encouraged to begin the application exploration process at least one year prior to the application deadline for the desired the term and year of admission.

Pathways candidates granted provisional admission via a reserved seat are always subject to completion of pre-matriculation requirements including, but not limited to, academic performance, successful completion of prerequisite coursework, achievement of specified standardized testing requirements, and professionalism reflective of medical school. All candidates will have completed a baccalaureate degree before matriculation into the M.D. program.

Direct Entry Pathway (Traditional Route)

Candidates who have or will have successfully completed a baccalaureate (often referred to as “4 year”) program of study from a regionally accredited post-secondary institution in the United States prior to matriculation to medical school may be eligible to apply through the Direct Entry admission pathway. Considerations for admission to the M.D. program may include demonstrated proficiency in appropriate coursework, scores from the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT), a commitment to the field of medicine, extracurricular and work activities. Candidates with goals and application credentials which suggest a strong affinity with the mission of the NEOMED College of Medicine will be reviewed most favorably. Personal interviews, by invitation only, are also a part of the applicant screening process. For more information about this program, please visit http://www.neomed.edu/admissions/medicine/direct.
