Strategic Plan

Inclusion • Innovation • Collaboration


Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) transforms learners, educators, researchers, alumni and the communities that it serves through the University’s six core values of competence, communication, caring, curiosity, character and community. The University Strategic Plan provides a blueprint that builds upon past successes while advancing NEOMED’s mission to improve the health, economy and quality of life of the diverse communities throughout Northeast Ohio through inclusion, innovation and collaboration.

NEOMED is at a critical juncture in view of the pace of changes in medicine, pharmacy, education and research, the breadth and reach of faculty activity, and our obligation to develop a sustainable business model. This plan positions the University to strengthen and extend its leadership role in education, research and service in this region and throughout Ohio.

NEOMED embraces change opportunities and will create dynamic academic partnerships while leveraging the establishment of strong, effective alliances among health care institutions. This vibrant framework focuses on the development of creative solutions, leveraging technology and working with multiple partners to solve some of health care’s most difficult challenges.

NEOMED will reimagine health professions education while designing new strategies to promote the economic growth of the region. Through innovation and collaboration, NEOMED will become an integrated educational, clinical, commercial and research delivery engine.

This Strategic Plan sets forth four mission-critical strategic goals and three overarching themes embedded in each goal: inclusion, innovation, and collaboration.
