The College of Engineering and NEOMED provide a coordinated program for those desiring both the M.D. and Ph.D. in Engineering degrees. This program integrates the knowledge and skills acquired by the student in each of the programs. Each individual coordinated degree program is tailored to suit the background and research interests of the student. Additional information may be obtained from The University of Akron Department of Biomedical Engineering or NEOMED.
Applications for the doctoral program in Engineering (MD/PhD) are accepted on a rolling basis.
To obtain an M.D. degree from NEOMED and a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Engineering, the student must satisfy NEOMED’s degree requirements and the College of Engineering’s Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering Degree Requirements. This coordinated program does not change the degree requirements for either program.
All assistantships (and any fellowships) are awarded through the academic department. Students interested in obtaining an assistantship must apply. New students may indicate on their online application for admission that they would like to be considered for an assistantship. Current students must contact the academic department for application information. Each department may have different requirements for assistantship applicants, so all students should contact the academic department to determine these particular requirements. Only those students fully admitted to a master’s or doctoral degree-seeking program are eligible for a graduate assistantship. Students admitted as non-degree seeking or to a certificate program may not hold an assistantship.
Paying for college is a vital part of the education process. It is important to be informed of the many sources of aid available. Student loans are available to degree-seeking graduate students. Information on student loans can be found through the Office of Student Financial Aid. The Office of Student Financial Aid is located in Simmons Hall.
Current tuition and fees schedules can be found through the Office of Student Accounts.
