Physicians - Teaching the Next Generation
"Unless you teach, neither you, nor osteopathic medicine will survive."
Andrew Taylor Still, M.D., D.O.
Physicians make a major contribution to the education of LECOM osteopathic medical students. The college has developed a network of nearly 1,200 physicians who make a commitment to teach medical students in their hospitals, clinics and practices.
LECOM supports our teaching physicians with Faculty Development Workshops, Continuing Medical Education conferences and through the Master of Science in Medical Education program.

Medical Associates of Erie is a multi-specialty group practice with various locations throughout Erie County. Specialties include: Family Practice, Orthopedics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Geriatrics and General Surgery. The physicians in the group are also instructors and professors at the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM). The organization was created to not only provide health care in our community, but to promote the advancement of medicine and education. More information about each of these physicians can be found under "Find A Physician." on the MAE website.
Millcreek Community Hospital is the most comprehensive care campus in our community.
In addition to primary care, emergency services, outpatient diagnostics, inpatient care, surgery and long-term care, we're uniquely known:
- As the region's only adult and adolescent behavioral health care facility with 62 inpatient beds, plus a new geriatric unit.
- For senior care, with a special transitional unit for patients who no longer need acute care, but are not well enough to return home.
- As a teaching hospital, offering more physician residency programs than any other hospitals in northwestern Pennsylvania.
- For meeting specific community needs, MCH founded LECOM to help solve a critical shortage of physicians in our region, operates clinics to provide care in medically underserved neighborhoods, and opened its Behavioral Health Care Unit, at the community's request, to fill a critical need for mental health care facilities.
