 Affiliated Schools of Pharmacy 





The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) School of Pharmacy and Slippery Rock University (SRU) are committed to the training of future pharmacy practitioners. Slippery Rock University and LECOM School of Pharmacy offer an accelerated, five-year Doctor of Pharmacy program. Under this joint agreement students will successfully complete the two-year undergraduate program in pre-pharmacy at SRU and then matriculate into LECOM School of Pharmacy to complete the professional curriculum of the Doctor of Pharmacy degree (Pharm.D) in three years. The accelerated professional pharmacy curriculum at LECOM School of Pharmacy is offered in a rigorous 12-month program per academic year.

The "2+3" Accelerated Pharmacy Program is an early entry pre-pharmacy program that will give students the opportunity to complete their pharmacy education in two phases: Phase I consists of the first two years of undergraduate education at SRU; and Phase II consists of the remaining three years of pharmacy education at LECOM School of Pharmacy.
