Medical School Curriculum


NEOMED offers a "small school" atmosphere, personalized attention, and what our students describe as a friendly and caring environment. We also have four consortium universities, numerous associated teaching hospitals, and nearly 2,200 clinical faculty members. To learn more about what NEOMED has to offer and what makes our combination of education, research, clinical care and service so unique, please read the welcome message from our Dean.


About the Program

The traditional four-year pre-medicine route comprises roughly one-third of the first-year medical school class at NEOMED each year.

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 faculty recommendations, student commitment and exposure to the field of medicine, and extracurricular and work activities. 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.
