School Overview

School Info

The largest medical school in the nation, the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and School of Pharmacy mission is to prepare students to become outstanding osteopathic physicians and pharmacy practitioners through programs of excellence in education, research, clinical care, and community service to enhance the quality of life through improved health for all humanity. The primary goal of LECOM is to educate students to become physicians practicing within the osteopathic concept. A secondary goal of the College is to educate and develop primary care physicians who will practice in the osteopathic tradition. The College imparts to its students a firm academic background enabling them to pursue advanced training in other fields of osteopathic medicine as well as primary care. The College encourages its students to participate in research to further advance their chosen profession.

Curriculum

LECOM recognizes students unique learning styles by offering four distinct pathways: The traditional Lecture- Discussion Pathway provides a systems approach to medicine; Problem-Based Learning offers mentored small group clinical case-based study; Independent Study allows students to learn a structured pre-clinical curriculum on their own; The Primary Care Scholars Pathway is the only program of its kind in the nation, offering the completion of the DO degree in three years.

Facilities

The college has four fully equipped lecture halls. Each of the two larger amphitheater style classrooms seats more than 250 students and two smaller lecture halls seating 150 students each. All lecture halls have ‘smart classroom’ equipment, with wireless and wired computer network connections for student laptops. In the larger lecture halls, instructors control and illustrate presentations from a computer tablet at the lectern.

The study of the body is an important part of becoming a competent health care provider. LECOM teaches gross anatomy in a climate-controlled lab. A modern Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine training lab includes video monitors so students can see close-up demonstrations of OMM techniques.

The campus includes a student lounge/cafeteria where a professional food service staff provides breakfast and lunch. Throughout the day, students use the main lounge and the nearby Vora Student Lounge for both individual and group study.

"I did not dwell on any negativity from other students since I was most grateful for being accepted when I knew it was a huge longshot." | Report Response

"I felt LECOM in some ways enforced to many rules that were unrelated to our education to show us that "it was their way or the highway"." | Report Response

"Awful policies No support Chaos" | Report Response

"The interior of the school building is very drab and gray. Sometimes they seem too strict with all of the rules against having food or drink in class, dress code, etc." | Report Response

"Mandatory attendance begins to wear you down during the spring semester of M2. You want to focus more on boards and thus sitting in lectures where slides are read to you are a waste of time." | Report Response

"Administration would hound us about little things" | Report Response

Please provide any other general comments on your school

"This school had been under review for 2 years for low board and shelf scores. They do not give you dedicated board time even though this is pretty standard. If you are not going to pass based on practice exams, then they place you in mandatory remediation for boards which is 50hrs of lecture a week for 1 month (they use one of your vacation rotations to do this)." | Report Response

"This school is very suffocating. They treat adults like children. I seriously felt that I had more personal liberties in high school." | Report Response

"This is a great school despite all the negative rumors. The PBL program did a great job preparing me for Step 1 and clinical rotations." | Report Response

"The school is very strictly run, attendance required, dress code, etc. However, most jobs have specific rules as well if you want to work for any company. The school is readying you for a real world, being accountable profession long before you graduate." | Report Response

"The school does provide a solid curriculum with adequate teaching (some good and some bad). If you want to stand out however, you must learn on your own to do well on rotations and the boards. I did not feel lecom provided more than a strong basic sciences background." | Report Response

"There are no cadavers for anatomy; just books" | Report Response

"Despite our dress code and not being able to even have water in the classroom, I feel that these have sometimes helped me to learn and have definitely taught me about professionalism. Our classes are big but it doesn't seem that way because we work in small lab groups and get to know or at least recognize most of our classmates over the first 2 years of school." | Report Response

"Good school, but glad to be done" | Report Response

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.
