Northeast Ohio Medical University is setting the standard for interprofessional education for health professionals - both in our region and across the nation. Our College of Pharmacy features a unique interdisciplinary curriculum in which a significant proportion of learning is accomplished simultaneously with medical students. The curriculum prepares graduates in a team approach to health and wellness for practice in a variety of community and inpatient settings.
Beginning from the onset, experiential curriculum components are taught throughout the university’s clinical facilities, which include formal teaching hospitals, community hospitals and health care systems, ambulatory care clinics, private and corporate pharmacies and county Boards of Health.
We help our students develop the characteristics that people want to see in their health care professionals: competence, communication, caring, character, community and curiosity.
If your professional calling is to provide excellent patient care as part of a health care team, then NEOMED is the place for you!

NEOMED requires 72 semester hour credits (105 quarter hour credits) of college be completed prior to matriculation. All prerequisite coursework must be completed with a grade of “C–“ or better. Applicants are strongly encouraged to successfully complete ALL course prerequisites by the end of the Spring 2016 term. However, NEOMED will allow completion of prerequisites during the summer semester prior to matriculation on a limited basis, with permission.
While all applicants are considered, those with GPA averages of 3.25 or higher and PCAT composite scores in the 50th percentile or better receive highest consideration for admission.
PharmCas applicants who are selected by NEOMED to move forward in the review process will be invited to complete the supplemental application and will receive access to that application at that time.
Applicants should take the PCAT no later than January 15 before anticipated matriculation.
Applicants must also provide documentation that they have completed all required immunications, have completed a criminal background check, submitted official final transcripts from all colleges previously attended, and enroll in NEOMED's medical, life and disability insurance coverage prior to matriculation.

Special Notice: While NEOMED does not currently accept international students/foreign citizens, it does recognize that there may be instances where United States citizens and permanent residents have earned UG credit at an institution outside the United States, and not as a study-abroad experience. In those instances, applicants must send a foreign transcript evaluation report (FTER) and original transcripts directly to NEOMED for review and consideration. Preferred vendors include World Education Services (WES), Joseph Silny and Associates, and AACRAO International Education Services. English translation is required. Preference is given to those applicants who have completed their program pre-requisites at a U.S. regionally accredited institution.
