Lourdes University and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine Curriculum Partnership

This program allows Lourdes biology majors to apply for the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) Early Acceptance Program (EAP) in three graduate tracks: Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy.

The LECOM College of Osteopathic Medicine School of Pharmacy and School of Dental Medicine offer an Early Acceptance Program that allows qualified Lourdes students to hold a provisional reserved seat at one of LECOM’s professional schools upon successful completion of an interview. Students can then pursue successful completion of their required undergraduate coursework at Lourdes University. Students must attain a Cumulative Science GPA of 3.2 or higher and a Cumulative GPA of 3.4 or higher while at Lourdes University. AP credits may be used to fulfill the credit requirements only if a score of 4 or 5 was achieved. Students must also meet any additional requirements depending on the LECOM track chosen – Medicine, Dentistry or Pharmacy.

Application to the LECOM EAP can occur as early as the senior year in high school and until the start of their third year at Lourdes University, depending upon the program and track desired. Students must be officially enrolled in the EAP for the two consecutive years prior to matriculation to LECOM.

Those interested in the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine Early Acceptance Program, can contact Lourdes University or call 419-885-5291.
