School Overview

School Info

The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) recognized the growing national need for pharmacists and opened the School of Pharmacy in 2002. LECOM believes that new trends in the Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum have complementary goals to the total-person, patient-centered care fostered by osteopathic medicine.

The LECOM School of Pharmacy has structured its classroom and experiential curriculum to prepare future pharmacists to provide patient care that ensures optimal therapeutic outcomes. The mission of the LECOM School of Pharmacy is to prepare pharmacy professionals committed to providing high-quality, ethical, and empathic patient-centered care to serve the needs of a diverse population. Through the integration of the sciences with critical thinking skills and effective communication, we will prepare future pharmacists to be strong patient advocates and leaders in their communities, in professional associations, and in all venues where pharmacists work from community pharmacies to hospitals, industry and academics.

Curriculum

LECOM provides a solid background in patient-centered care and prepares its Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) graduates to become effective members of the health care team for all areas of practice.

Facilities

LECOM is a private, non-profit college located on a 20-acre campus overlooking beautiful Lake Erie offering professional programs in osteopathic medicine and pharmacy

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
