YSU BaccMed is an accelerated pre-medical program with the goal of recruiting more physicians into primary care. Students pursue a Bachelor of Science in special Biology or Biochemistry pathways that satisfy all known medical school admission. While YSU-BaccMed students may apply to any medical school, YSU’s special partnerships with NEOMED and LECOM give YSU-BaccMed students unique opportunities for admission and scholarship support.

The YSU Choose Ohio First Scholarship Program targets Ohio residents interested in pursuing a STEMM major with the intent of increasing the number of STEMM graduates and the number who stay in Ohio for employment.
