About Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine

Primary Industry: Health Science

The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) is the nation's largest medical college and is part of LECOM Health, the only health system with an Osteopathic Academic Health Center in the United States. The College, Millcreek Community Hospital, and Medical Associates of Erie, the clinical practice network of physician offices located in Erie County, form the core of this highly innovative medical education and patient care system. LECOM is at the core of this highly innovative medical education system and strives to add to the quality of life of our neighbors by bringing total healthcare to the community. LECOM is preparing the next generation of physicians, dentists and pharmacists at campuses in Erie and Greensburg, PA and in Bradenton, FL.

LECOM has more than 3700 future healthcare professionals preparing for the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO), Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD), Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), Master of Science degrees and Post Baccalaureate program. The College maintains one of the lowest, private medical school tuitions in the country while maintaining the highest standards in medical education.
The College is unique in the number of student-centered educational pathways offered that match the individual learning styles of its students. These include two programs of only five programs in the country that allow medical students to complete the DO degree in three years.

LECOM also offers a three-year pharmacy degree in Erie and a four-year pharmacy degree in Bradenton, including a four-year, distance education pathway. The School of Dental Medicine is a four-year program with the final year dedicated to clinical training in communities where there is a high need for dental care.

The College has developed special Early Acceptance Programs (EAP) with more than 120+ affiliated institutions. These undergraduate colleges and universities grant qualified students a provisional early acceptance to LECOM’s School of Pharmacy, School of Dental Medicine or College of Osteopathic Medicine. In some cases, these programs will permit the student to start the professional program prior to receiving a bachelor degree from the undergraduate institution. The College also works with high schools to assist students interested in the EAP.

U.S. News & World Report ranks LECOM among the top five medical colleges for graduating primary care physicians. And our graduates consistently score high on national licensing board exams. At a time when health care is fundamentally changing, the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine continues to build healthier communities, one graduate and one patient at a time.
