LECOM 3+4 EARLY ACCEPTANCE MEDICINE Gannon University, in affiliation with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM), offers an early acceptance program for qualified students to earn a bachelor’s degree from Gannon University and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree from LECOM. The 3+4 early acceptance program grants highly motivated academically strong students an opportunity to gain conditionally guaranteed acceptance to LECOM as early as the senior year of high school. Participation in the program alleviates much of the cost of applying to medical schools, while providing a strong background in scientific and biomedical courses at Gannon University. After completing their undergraduate education at Gannon University, students matriculate to either the main campus in Erie, Pennsylvania which includes an additional location at Seton Hill University in Greensburg, Pennsylvania or a branch campus in Bradenton, Florida. Successful completion of the first year of medical school at LECOM will allow students in the 3+4 early acceptance program to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in health science from Gannon University. GU Undergraduate Entry Requirements • Completion of four years of science courses at the high school level (biology and chemistry courses are required, while physics is highly recommended)
