Post-Baccalaureate Early Assurance Pathway

Apply for a two-year pre-med program at CSU & Early Assurance to medical school

Do you hold a bachelor’s degree and an interest in practicing as a community-based physician? Do you have ties to northeast Ohio and aspire to lead transformative change in health care?

Early Assurance to medical school through the Cleveland State University Pathways to Practice Post-Baccalaureate early assurance program may be right for you.

Partner School

NEOMED offers the Post-Baccalaureate Early Assurance Pathway in partnership with Cleveland State University through the NEOMED-CSU Pathways to Practice program.

The Process

The Post-Baccalaureate Early Assurance Pathway is a two-step process to admission to College of Medicine at NEOMED as a first-year medicine student.

Step 1

Contact the Pathways to Practice team at the Cleveland State University to determine your first step. If you are not a current Cleveland State student you will have to apply for admission to Cleveland State.  Once post-baccalaureate admission to Cleveland State University is secured, you may be nominated for early assurance privileges at NEOMED through the process specified by Pathways to Practice.

All nominated candidates for early assurance privileges to NEOMED will be evaluated for invitation to interview with NEOMED. A successful interview with NEOMED is required for consideration of post-baccalaureate early assurance to NEOMED. All early assurance decisions will be made by the NEOMED College of Medicine Admissions Committee and communicated to Cleveland State University.

Step 2

The second step allows a Cleveland State University Pathways to Practice post-baccalaureate pathway student who has been granted early assurance privilege to medical school at NEOMED the opportunity to apply for admission to claim that reserved seat. This second step is actual admission to the College of Medicine at NEOMED through AMCAS.
