Medical School Curriculum


NEOMED offers a "small school" atmosphere, personalized attention, and what our students describe as a friendly and caring environment. Following a community-based education model, NEOMED is affiliated with numerous associated teaching hospitals and nearly 2,200 clinical faculty members throughout northern and central Ohio. This distinctive NEOMED experience benefits our medical school students by providing personal attention in rigorous didactic courses combined with a wealth of clinical preparation and experiences in a diverse range of settings. The results are reflected in the most recent USMLE Step 1 passage rate being above the national average and a 100% residency match rate. To learn more about what NEOMED has to offer and what makes our combination of education, research, clinical care and service so distinctive, please read the welcome message from our Dean.


About the Program

Application requirements include demonstrated proficiency in appropriate college course work and competitive scores that are no more than two years old from the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). Other admission criteria include, student commitment and exposure to the field of medicine, and extracurricular and work activities that reflect a strong affinity for the mission of the College of Medicine. The medical school interview, by invitation only, is a vital part of the screening process.

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

An earned bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university in the United States is required of all accepted direct entry applicants prior to matriculating to NEOMED.
