CSU-NEOMED partnership won’t have accelerated program

Cleveland State is joining the University of Akron, Kent State and Youngstown State as a feeder school into Northeast Ohio Medical University in Rootstown.

Unlike the other schools, CSU will not have an accelerated program in which prospective medical students can earn their undergraduate degrees in three years or fewer.

On the surface, that doesn’t sound like much of an endorsement of CSU’s academic standing.

However, Mark A. Penn, special assistant to the president and vice provost for affairs at CSU and special adviser to the president at NEOMED, says otherwise. He cited the following reasons:

– The CSU-NEOMED program will call for students with more life experience.

– If students want to do an accelerated program, they can go to one of those schools.

– Students will have more options in undergrad degrees before entering the CSU-NEOMED medical program. “You can come from just about any major here, B.S. or B.A,” Penn said.

– “We want to diversify the workforce in regard to race and ethnicity,” Penn said. “If you don’t create a system that builds on the strengths Cleveland State has … we want to give all backgrounds an opportunity to succeed.”

The CSU-NEOMED partnership, specifically the 35 seats it’s receiving State Share of Instruction money for, has a goal of producing doctors who will practice primary care in urban communities.
