A Message from President Jay A. Gershen

Neomed will shine on with your support


Northeast Ohio Medical University has:

  • Forty years of preparing outstanding physicians, many of whom have established their medical practices and homes here in Northeast Ohio;
  • A dynamic pharmacy program, celebrating its 10th anniversary, with 100% placement rate in positions and residencies, as well as a growing College of Graduate Studies; and
  • Four decades of providing best-in-class medical education and scientific research, of generating economic impact in the region, of making discoveries in the laboratory, and helping patients at their bedsides and in their communities.

That’s the Northeast Ohio Medical University way!

If you had the opportunity to join us on campus to celebrate NEOMED’s 40th anniversary – or if you have visited campus recently – then you have an idea of the transformation the University is undergoing. Even those who graduated or visited within the past several years are excited by the physical changes to campus, as we have doubled the campus footprint with truly impressive, state-of-the-art facilities.

Those facilities are bustling with activity as students, faculty and staff engage in multidisciplinary scholarship, collaborative learning and a shared commitment to advancing health care that permeates the landscape at our state’s only dedicated medical university.

All of this is laudable – more than worthy of celebration. But we are far from resting on our laurels.

This is NEOMED’s time to shine.

The past decades have laid a strong foundation for success, and now is the time that we must act to ignite unprecedented achievement and community impact through the opportunities for philanthropic investment outlined here. Your generosity during Shine On: The Campaign for Northeast Ohio Medical University will make it happen.

Thank you for supporting NEOMED. Because of you, this great university will shine on.

Jay A. Gershen
