NEOMED counsels prospective college students to contact the above partners directly in the event they are making a college choice based upon an early assurance partnership with NEOMED.  NEOMED does not endorse one partner school’s offerings over another. All have a history of providing NEOMED students with an excellent pre-medical foundation. Families are highly encouraged to select a partner institution based upon overall fit for your student’s expectations of an undergraduate experience.

The Process

The Early Assurance Undergraduate Partnership Pathway is a two-step process to the College of Medicine at NEOMED as a first-year medicine student. Please note that early assurance pathway has changed effective May 2021.

Step 1

The first step consists of undergraduate students currently enrolled at a partner college or university earning an early assurance nomination through their current school’s nomination process. Nominated candidates interview with NEOMED for early assurance privilege. Early assurance privilege reserves a seat in a future medical school class at NEOMED should candidates meet or exceed early assurance plan admission standards.

Step 2

The second step allows students granted early assurance privileges to NEOMED to apply for admission through AMCAS using the Early Assurance plan to earn their admission.

Effective May 2021 students interested in early assurance privileges to NEOMED are to meet with the designated pre-medical advisor at their partner college or university.

Admission Requirements

Candidates must be on track to successfully complete a bachelor’s degree program at their partner institution (the reserved seat is forfeited should you transfer) and complete all required pre-requisite courses with a grade of “C minus” or better to use their early assurance privileges and successfully apply to the College of Medicine at NEOMED.
