MEDCAMP Registration Open Through April 29

Do you know an area undergraduate who is interested in the medical professions?

Now in its 32nd year, MEDCAMP provides hands-on experiences in bio-medical science workshops ― research, clinical problem-solving and an introduction to the fields of clinical medicine.

Participants join physicians, College of Medicine students, faculty and researchers in performing applied activities ― physician-patient communication practices; identifying clues to a patient’s illness; how to solve medical cases by using critical thinking; and modern laboratory techniques.

Participants also complete a case study on a fictitious patient, which focuses on a current and relevant community health issue.

Applicant requirements

Applicants must be at least 18 years old and have a high school or equivalent diploma by July 11.

They must also be enrolled at a college or university and entering their first, second or third year.

Participants selected to participate in MEDCAMP must reside or attend school in Ashland, Ashtabula, Carroll, Columbiana, Crawford, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Holmes, Lake, Lorain, Mahoning, Medina, Portage, Richland, Stark, Summit, Tuscarawas, Trumbull or Wayne Counties.

All students must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher.


MEDCAMP will be July 7-9. Tuition for the three-day experience is $150. There are a limited number of tuition waivers available for eligible participants.

All meals are provided, and participants are transported by bus to a Kent State University dormitory for overnight accommodations.

First consideration is given to applicants from groups underrepresented in the health care professions. NEOMED values diversity in its educational, research, service and health care missions and is committed to improving and advancing diversity among its participants, faculty and staff. Selection of participants in MEDCAMP is conducted in a manner consistent with these values.
