Go to information for Pre-Medicine Programs at SFU .

Under a joint agreement between the Lake Erie University of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) and SFU, undergraduate students are enrolled jointly by SFU and LECOM. The program is comprised of two phases: phase I consists of the first three or four years of undergraduate education at Saint Francis; Phase II consists of the remaining four years of medical school education at LECOM. Saint Francis University will confer the Bachelor of Science degree to students enrolled in the "3+4" track upon successful completion of the first year of LECOM's academic curriculum.

Students will be admitted to the SFU Phase (Phase I) of the program based upon the following criteria:

  SAT Scores or ACT Scores >1170 (re-centered) or ACT score of 26
  High School GPA 3.5 on a scale of 4.0
  Potential Additional evidence of scholarly and professional potential and desire to become a primary care physician

The SAT scores (1170) and high school GPA (3.5) serve as targets for applicant selection for admission to the program; other parameters, such as personal traits and desire to become an osteopathic physician, will also be considered for each applicant.

SFU representatives will interview applicants to the program and submit acceptable applications for review to LECOM with a recommendation for provisional acceptance. LECOM will interview students within the first two years of being properly enrolled in the program. Therefore, acceptance to Phase I of the program will be determined jointly by SFU and LECOM.

Students who are interested in pursuing the pre-professional studies program in Osteopathic Medicine should contact Dr. Marian Langer, program coordinator and chair of the Biology Department.
