NEOMED Requirements

In their undergraduate years, students are encouraged to have a broad and balanced educational background. Apart from science courses, suggested fields of study include: literature, mathematics, behavioral sciences, history, philosophy, and arts. Research at college will demonstrate intellectual ambition, independent thinking, curiosity, and self-discipline.

The test should be conducted no later than September of the year before and MCAT scores older than three years from the date of registration are not accepted.


Courses are approved only from universities accredited in the United States or Canada by the National Committee of Local Accrediting Agencies. That would include community colleges, junior colleges, and coursework online. Advanced placement courses in high school will only be approved when credit appears on the applicant’s college transcript and the AMCAS transcript. All undergraduate courses must usually be taken within the United States. Nevertheless, if you completed a graduate course in the U.S. and the final transcript stated that you already received credit for the non-U.S. student courses, Northeast Ohio College of Medicine can consider those courses.

Letter of Recommendation

The Northeast Ohio College of Medicine is engaged in the letter service of AMCAS, and all letters should be sent through AMCAS. NEOMED needs a letter from the Committee or a letter packet if it is given by the candidate’s college or university. In AMCAS, these combined letters count as one letter and meet the entire criteria. If the candidate’s school has no counselor or committee, the candidate must send three letters as follows: two letters from the science professors with whom the candidate took classes, and one letter from the non-science professor with whom the candidate took classes.

This is singularly the best investment I made for the first year of medical school. Each video is a jackpot of information with amazing drawings, great energy, and a phenomenal professor!
Kathryn Giroux Whitefish, Ontario
Kathryn Giroux
Currently, the only things saving my embryology and 1st-trimester ultrasound marks - keep the wealth of education flowing! Highly recommended!
Maryam Moradi The University of Texas, Austin
Maryam Moradi
I bought lifetime access because I believe there is no better source for learning the foundation of medicine. I strongly recommend him to anyone who cares about true learning and not merely memorizing!
Jackson David Reynolds University of North Georgia
Jackson David Reynolds
Dr. Najeeb Lectures are top notch. Comprehensive medical lectures of the utmost quality across all preclinical (and many clinical) topics. Fantastic for deepening one's understanding for clinical practice and licensing/board examinations.
Jacob Joseph Columbus, Ohio
Jacob Joseph
Dr. Najeeb is the single most spectacular medical teacher you will ever have! I love this man. He has clarified everything from the coagulation cascade, immunology, neurology, and embryology. His sense of humor and brilliant illustrations make everything stick well in your memory. His ability to illustrate 3-dimensional relationships has been useful for excelling in anatomy. I cannot thank you enough for all the wonderful work you do. I recommend your lectures to anyone who wants to truly understand medicine!
Ann Ilaria Mayrhofer London School of Hygiene.
Ann Ilaria Mayrhofer
I'm grappling with my online studies in Infectious Disease at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. It's made me realize what a visual learner I still am. So these vids are making what was murky crystal clear. While I am easily distracted when I have to do hours of straight reading, I am glued to the videos. I've looked for a series of such videos for months. A million thanks - Dr Najeeb has a true passion for teaching and can convey highly complex topics in an understandable and fun way.
