Accelerated B.S./M.D. Degree Program
The College of Medicine has the oldest accelerated combined degree program in the state of Ohio and one of only 18 accelerated programs in the nation. Students apply to the program during their senior year of high school and, upon admission, enjoy the benefits of having a reserved seat in the College of Medicine when they begin their college program.
Baccalaureate/M.D. Degree Programs
In order to meet the ever-growing primary health care needs of the region, NEOMED has developed partnerships with Cleveland State University (CSU) and Hiram College to establish baccalaureate to M.D. pathway programs.

Direct Entry M.D. Degree Program
Typically, 20 percent of NEOMED's first-year students in the M.D. program are admitted via the traditional four-year premedicine route called direct entry. Having completed necessary undergraduate work, students admitted via this route enter directly into the four-year program.
Post-Baccalaureate/M.D. Degree Program
The NEOMED-CSU Partnership offers students in the post-baccalaureate/M.D. program the necessary pre-medical courses and a reserved seat in the College of Medicine at NEOMED. Students will complete a Bachelor of Science degree in health sciences with an urban health concentration at CSU prior to matriculating to NEOMED.
Tuition for coursework at the University will be paid directly to NEOMED. During times of undergraduate studies, tuition and fees will be assessed by your undergraduate university. View NEOMED College of Medicine tuition and fees.
