Pathways

LECOM has designed a student-centered curriculum recognizing different learning styles: traditional Lecture Discussion Pathway (LDP); small-group, Problem-Based Learning Pathway, the Self Directed-Study Pathway (DSP, formerly Independent Study). LECOM offers the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Degree at four campuses. The Erie, Pennsylvania, campus offers four learning pathways while the Greensburg, PA, Bradenton, FL and Elmira, NY campuses enroll students in PBL only. LECOM Erie also offers the Primary Care Scholars Pathway (PCSP) designed to attract more students to primary care, general internal medicine, and family medicine by condensing four years of medical education into three years. The Accelerated Physician Assistant Pathway (APAP) also allows Certified Physician Assistants (PA-C) to earn a DO degree in three years. APAP is available at the Greensburg campus only.
