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:

  3+4 Program 4+4 Program
SAT Scores or ACT Scores >1340 SAT or ACT score of 28 >1240 SAT or ACT score of 26
High School GPA 3.7 on a scale of 4.0 3.5 on a scale of 4.0
Potential Additional evidence of scholarly and professional potential and desire to become a primary care physician Additional evidence of scholarly and professional potential and desire to become a primary care physician

The SAT scores (1240 or 1340) and high school GPA (3.5 or 3.7) 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.  Acceptance into Phase II is contingent on completion of a pre-medicine program at Saint Francis and maintaining GPA standards (for “3+4” track: > 3.5 Cumulative Overall GPA, and >3.2 Cumulative Science GPA; for “4+4” track: >3.4 Cumulative Overall GPA, >3.2 Cumulative Science GPA).  Additional stipulations for matriculation are set forth in the articulation agreement between Saint Francis University and LECOM.

Students who are interested in pursuing the pre-medicine program in Osteopathic Medicine should contact Dr. Marian Langer, program coordinator.

Students can also find additional information about the program on LECOM’s website. http://lecom.edu/admissions/entrance-requirements/early-acceptance-programs/
