The B.S./M.D. program consists of two Phases; Phase I is the undergraduate curriculum and Phase II is medical school at NEOMED. Each year Kent State University admits 35 carefully selected students into its B.S./M.D. degree program.
Students selected for the program enter Phase I, the B.S. degree phase, and obtain the baccalaureate degree (BS-Integrated Life Sciences) in two to three years.
In Phase II, study is devoted primarily to the basic medical sciences, e.g. anatomy, physiology, microbiology, etc., then the student develops competence in the clinical aspects of medicine through instruction provided principally at one or more of the associated community hospitals.
