Northeast Ohio communities including Akron, Canton, Cleveland, Kent & Youngstown
Situated in the center of Northeast Ohio, NEOMED is in close proximity to four metropolitan areas: Cleveland, Akron, Canton and Youngstown. These cities hold some of the most reputable health care systems in the country and the world. As a university committed to training physicians, pharmacists and health researchers, NEOMED holds unique opportunities to connect and partner with these hospitals in areas such as education and research, to improve the lives and experiences of our students, faculty, staff and the communities we serve.
Aside from health care, each metropolitan area offers its own benefits: Cleveland hosts several professional sports teams including the Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Cavaliers and Cleveland Indians. The city also offers diverse neighborhoods like Ohio City, Little Italy, Tremont, and Downtown; and newly spurred economic growth thanks to multiple major renovation and revitalization projects in areas such as Public Square and the Flats. Akron features several billion-dollar corporations, the only National Park in Ohio, and hundreds of miles of hiking/biking trails. Canton has a fast-growing arts community, and is the home of Pro Football, including the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village and the yearly Enshrinement Festival. And Youngstown is full of history and some of the best suburbs in the region. The metropolitan areas also comprise Kent, a university town that has undergone an extensive revitalization and is known as a place of both culture and commerce. In addition, it is home to approximately 20 parks and preserves and hosts a number of diverse festivals throughout the year. There is truly something for everyone in Northeast Ohio. NEOMED embodies this sentiment and we make sure there is a place for everyone here, too.
NEOMED is committed to its partnership with each of our neighboring metropolitan areas. Most of our students, faculty and staff hail from the region, lending their experiences to a university that is just as diverse as the communities that surround it. We are active members of the Greater Cleveland Partnership, Greater Akron Chamber, Canton Chamber of Commerce, Kent Area Chamber of Commerce and Youngstown/ Warren Chamber of Commerce, with Board representation at each.
