Pharmacy Three Year Pathway

LECOM provides a solid background in patient-centered care and prepares its Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) graduates to become effective members of the health care team for all areas of practice.

Setting LECOM Erie apart from other schools of pharmacy are our:

  • Innovative, year-round curriculum leading to completion of the professional program in pharmacy in three years instead of four years, enabling LECOM students to enter the job market one year earlier.
  • Introductory and advanced experiential components where LECOM students work with pharmacists practicing in a variety of practice sites.
  • Integration of science and practice throughout the program.
  • Technologically advanced facilities that prepare students to practice in the 21st century.

The future is very bright for our graduates. The demand for pharmacists is high due to the increased medication and health care needs of an older population. There are also a wide variety of practice settings for LECOM graduates to choose from, including: community, hospital, industry, ambulatory care, managed care, government, academia and others.
