Students in an anatomy lab



This program is designed to train the next generation of anatomists and anatomy educators. The program provides a high volume of hands-on experience in a research setting and the opportunity to work and learn as part of an interprofessional team with health care professionals. There are two tracks: Master (one year) and M.S. (two year).


Health Research

Graduate Certificate

The Health Research Graduate Certificate provides students with an opportunity to enhance their professional education or to serve as a pathway toward graduate education in health sciences. Students who enroll in this certificate are exposed to essential research knowledge and training, competitive skills useful for recruitment in post-graduate programs (i.e. residency), and early career grant funding. Students will refine their research interests, gain exposure to new research methods and technologies, develop their leadership skills, and help them identify potential career opportunities in clinical, academic, or industry settings where research fluency is increasingly applied and sought after.


Medical Ethics & Humanities

M.A., two Tracks

Students begin the program by building a foundation in the medical humanities with theoretical perspectives in ethics. This foundation gives students the tools to critically examine issues and values relevant to health care delivery, research, and the health care organization, as well as the ability to self-reflect, addressing biases and recognizing different viewpoints.


Health-System Pharmacy Administration

M.S, two tracks

Students build on clinical competence to develop administrative, financial and leadership skills related to health-system administration, which will enable them to manage complex health-system pharmacy departments at the institutional and department levels. The M.S. degree only track provides flexibility and may be completed in two to four years. The combined M.S. degree/residency program requires a concurrent two-year specialized residency in pharmacy administration.


Public Health


This program provides graduates with a foundation of public health skills and knowledge, including analytic skills, research strategies, community assessment methods, program implementation, evaluation, and policy development within an ethical and culturally sensitive perspective. The traditional program is geared toward the working professional who would like to broaden their role in improving community health, enhance current job skills, or seek career advancement.


Biomedial Sciences

M.S or Ph.D.

In partnership with Kent State University, the biomedical sciences graduate degree program is designed to promote research and education in the biomedical disciplines. Individuals in the program have the opportunity to carry out their research with scientists at NEOMED. Faculty research focuses on most aspects of biomedicine ranging from molecular, to cellular and organismal levels of biological organization.
