Osteopathic Medicine Dual Degree

Putting care back in health care.

Doctors of osteopathic medicine strive to make sure that trend doesn’t continue as they work with the individual on a holistic health care plan – and the Mount’s osteopathic medicine dual degree program can provide the education to pursue a career helping people become and stay healthy.

About the program.

Doctors of osteopathic medicine do everything an M.D. would do but have an extra emphasis on treating the whole person, including getting to know patients as people and carefully considering the value of preventive care and patient education.

The osteopathic medicine 4/4 dual degree program allows you to earn your bachelor’s degree from the Mount in four years or less and go directly on to earn a doctoral degree from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) during the next four years.

While at the Mount, you’ll study biology, genetics, general and organic chemistry, physics and psychology. At LECOM, you’ll enroll in one of five different pathways based on your chosen career focus and learning style.

After graduation from LECOM, you’ll be able to pursue positions at such locations as a family practice, clinic or health care organization.

Victoria Cocozza Mount St. Mary's Class of 2016

I was unsure if I would be able to get into medical school. However, with guidance from my professors, I applied to the Mount St. Mary’s University/Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine 4+4 program. In three weeks and one medical school interview later, I was accepted. Now I will accomplish my lifelong dream of becoming a doctor.
