Ashland University has an affiliation with the Cooperative Medical Technology Program of Akron, a joint program among three major hospital systems in Akron. This program allows students to take three years of coursework at AU and then one year of course/clinical work in Akron. At the end of the program students will receive both the baccalaureate degree from Ashland and the professional certificate from Akron.
