Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) has developed special Early Acceptance Programs (EAP) with select community colleges, undergraduate colleges and universities that grant qualified students a provisional early acceptance to LECOM’s College of Osteopathic Medicine. Detroit Mercy is an “undergraduate affiliated college” with the College of Medicine at LECOM.

Detroit Mercy has both the 4+4 and the 3+4 programs which permit Titans to start medical school at LECOM prior to receiving a bachelor degree from Detroit Mercy.

The advantages include:

  • EAP students enter the College of Medicine after three or four years of bachelor's study at Detroit Mercy.
  • High school seniors and current Detroit Mercy students may apply through LECOM for EAP consideration.
  • Students enrolled in the EAP may be exempt from taking the MCAT.
  • Additional requirements must be met for final acceptance to LECOM including, interviewing, maintaining a minimum GPA and activity engagement.
