JONESBORO — The Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board has granted certification for a new medical school on the campus of Arkansas State University.

The board on Friday approved certification for the New York Institute of Technology to offer three degrees at the Jonesboro campus: a doctor of osteopathic medicine, a master of science in medical/health care simulation and a master of science in neuromusculoskeletal sciences. The certification is contingent on the school receiving approval from a national accreditation association.

The Arkansas State University Board of Trustees agreed earlier this year to partner with the New York Institute of Technology to establish the school.

Officials hope to open the medical school in fall 2016, with a target class size of 115 students. The medical school has a projected startup cost of $10 million.
