A University for the Community

Northeast Ohio Medical University is – and always has been – a university for the community. For more than 40 years, NEOMED has been engaged in public service, and we remain focused on our mission to improve the health, economy and quality of life in the surrounding community and throughout Northeast Ohio. Whether we are developing experiences and programming for the local community, providing regional health care access to underserved communities, teaming with organizations to give back or collaborating with government, civic or private partners for successful economic development, NEOMED is committed to being a community partner.
