B.S./M.D. Admissions


The 2016-2017 application will open later this year.

About The Program

If you assumed that medical school was at least four years in the future and becoming a physician at least eight, NEOMED offers a different path to explore!

NEOMED 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 medical school when they begin their college program. They earn a combined bachelor of science and doctor of medicine (B.S./M.D.) degree in only six or seven years.

The B.S./M.D. program has two phases. In Phase 1, students take premedical course work at an accelerated pace of two or three years at one of the three universities in the NEOMED educational consortium: The University of Akron, Kent State University and Youngstown State University. NEOMED's main campus is centrally located to all three universities, being fewer than 35 miles from each. Classes are attended full time on one of these campuses, including summers. However, students have vacations between semesters, in the spring and over the winter holidays.

Following the successful completion of Phase 1, students begin Phase 2, NEOMED's four-year medical school program.

At the time of application, all candidates must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
