Application Materials and Deadline
The following materials are required for all Advanced Standing applications:
- Advanced Standing Admissions Application
- Official transcripts from all current and previous post-secondary enrollment
- Evidence of good standing at current college, either indicated on your transcript or in a Letter of Good Standing from your dean or registrar.
- Official NBME transcript of USMLE Step 1 Score Report
- Letters of recommendation are not required.
The Advanced Standing Transfer application fee is waived for the 2016 application year.
Official transcripts from all current and previous post-secondary colleges/universities attended are required. In unusual cases where such transcripts are impossible to obtain, it may be possible to make special arrangements by notifying the Office of Admissions in writing.
Please have an official NBME transcript of your USMLE Step 1 scores forwarded to the Office of Enrollment Services. This responsibility lies solely on the applicant. We will not seek out test scores for students who do not send them to us.
Criminal Background Check
The Northeast Ohio Medical University will require a criminal background check (CBC) on all applicants offered acceptance to the College. In addition, a CBC may be required annually thereafter to meet enrollment and registration requirements. If offered acceptance to the College, this acceptance is conditional, pending the result of the background check. The College reserves the right to revoke an offer of acceptance and/or to terminate participation in any and all curricular activities based on the background check report. Applicants offered acceptance must also incur the cost of the CBC.
As slots become available, successful candidates will be contacted regarding on-campus interviews and clinical skills assessment sessions. These sessions will occur for application cycle one candidates in May. If additional candidates are required from admission cycle two additional sessions will be scheduled for June or July.
The interview sessions include a standard interview and a clinical skills assessment. Invited candidates must pay a fee of $300.00 to defray the costs. They must also bear the cost of their living and traveling expenses associated with interviewing.
A candidate for the M.D. degree must be able to demonstrate intellectual-conceptual, integrative and quantitative abilities; skills in observation, communication, motor functions; and mature behavioral and social attributes. Technological compensation can be made for some handicaps in certain of these areas, but a candidate should be able to perform in a reasonably independent manner without a trained intermediary. The use of a trained intermediary means that a candidate’s judgment must be mediated by someone else’s power of selection and observation.
