Biology: Pre-Pharmacy 2+3 (LECOM)

Offered by: Biology

The Biology: Pre-Pharmacy 2+3 program offers you a smooth transition to the Doctor of Pharmacy program at the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) School of Pharmacy. As part of this program, you will spend two years at SRU taking core courses before completing the final three years of your Pharmacy degree (Pharm.D) at LECOM. This affiliation provides a limited number of guaranteed seats to qualified students.

Why Choose Biology: Pre-Pharmacy 2+3 With LECOM?

SRU and the LECOM School of Pharmacy are committed to the training of future pharmacy practitioners. Under this joint agreement, you may complete a two-year undergraduate program in pre-pharmacy through the Department of Biology at SRU and then matriculate into LECOM School of Pharmacy to complete the professional Doctor of Pharmacy degree (Pharm.D) in three years.

What Will You Learn?

The accelerated professional pharmacy curriculum at LECOM School of Pharmacy is offered on a rigorous 12-month program year.

The 2+3 accelerated pharmacy program is an early entry pre-pharmacy program that gives 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.

Please note, in this program, you will not earn an undergraduate degree from SRU. Rather, you will earn a Pharm.D degree from LECOM.
