School of Dental Medicine Graduation Outcomes
LECOM On-Time Graduation Rates, NBDE Level 1 and 2 Pass Rates, and ADEX CDCA Mannequin, Clinical, and Computer Diagnostic Skills Exams Pass Rates
Policy regarding methods used to collect and review information on student outcomes and licensure pass rates: Data regarding student pass rates on licensure exams is collected annually from national licensing bodies and is posted to LECOM’s website. This information is collected and reviewed by the Dean of each respective program and the Provost of the institution. Once the data has been reviewed and confirmed, it is approved by the Office of Communications and Marketing for use on the LECOM.edu website, as well as in recruitment materials.
As part of the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine’s (LECOM) policy on graduation and licensure, the School of Dental Medicine (SDM) provides the following information regarding its graduation and licensing exam first-time pass rates. While this information is not required by the American Dental Association (ADA) Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) for purposes of accreditation, LECOM’s policy is to provide this information to the public, including current and prospective students. The LECOM SDM offers a 4-year Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) program in Bradenton, FL. The SDM monitors outcomes of its graduates using on-time graduation rates, as well as pass rates for the National Board of Dental Examiners (NBDE) Level 1 and 2 Exams, and the American Board of Dental Examiners (ADEX) Commission of Dental Competency Assessment (CDCA) Mannequin, Clinical, and Computer Diagnostic Skills Exams.
