The Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) and Cleveland State University have agreed to join forces to provide increased access to medical education for students in Northeast Ohio. Through this collaboration, medical students will be educated and trained as primary care physicians who provide care specifically for the needs of citizens from diverse backgrounds who make their home in blighted urban communities. The region has significant challenges associated with providing health care in an urban environment marked by substantial poverty. CSU and NEOMED are determined to make an impact on this problem and are committed to changing the face of urban health in our region.
The CSU/NEOMED collaboration is important to the advancement of CSU’s focus on developing its health science programs to serve the region. The initiative ties the high quality medical education, patient care and employment institutions in the city of Cleveland, including the Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth, and St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, to the education, research, community outreach and work force development programs of CSU.
