    If you feel called to be a doctor, dentist or pharmacist, it's possible to be accepted into medical, dental, or pharmacy school while still a senior in high school, thanks to Ursuline's new partnership with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM).

    Our 4+4 Early Acceptance Program (EAP) through LECOM means that, if qualified, you could gain acceptance to both Ursuline and LECOM to earn a seat in the medical, dental or pharmacy professional programs. It's possible to get accepted as early as senior year in high school or as late as April of your second year at Ursuline.

    Through this program, you'll earn a traditional four-year bachelor’s degree from Ursuline in Biology, Biochemistry, or Chemistry and automatically enter a four-year medical, dental, or pharmacy program the summer after graduation.

    LECOM is the nation’s largest medical school, with three locations in Pennsylvania and one in Florida. Notably, LECOM has a 97% board pass rate for first-time test-takers. Application to the EAP is free. Acceptance saves time, money and stress and keeps you focused on your goal!

    LECOM is reserving up to five seats each year specifically for Ursuline students. Once accepted, you'll be held to the following to remain in the program:

    • Minimum overall grade point average of 3.4 at Ursuline
    • Minimum GPA of 3.2 or better in all Ursuline science courses
    • AP credit may not be used for required science courses in the medical and dental school and only will be accepted for these courses by the pharmacy school if a score of three or higher is obtained on the exam
    • Complete LECOM prerequisites and application requirements
    • Full-time status with no interruptions
    • The DAT is required for all dental school applicants. And Academic Average of > 18 and sub-category scores > 17 are required. No MCAT or GPAT is required, which saves time and money.

    If you’re thinking of applying to medical school, pharmacy school, or dental school, building a broad academic/extracurricular resume is the best thing you can do to be competitive. Gain exposure to the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and fine arts through the Ursuline Core Curriculum and take a sequence of prerequisites for admission to medical school, pharmacy school or dental school, while majoring in Biology, Chemistry, or Biochemistry. Conduct your own research in our newly renovated lab spaces and present your findings at our Student Research Symposium. You’ll build leadership skills, engage in service, and round out your resume by fully participating in campus life.

    To learn more about Ursuline's 4+4 partnership with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, contact the faculty liaison, Dr. Lynn Ulatowski.
