Dental Medicine Cooperative Degree Program with the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine
Seton Hill’s cooperative degree program with the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) School of Dental Medicine enables qualifying Seton Hill incoming freshmen to also reserve a seat in LECOM’s dental school in Bradenton, Florida.
How the Program Works
LECOM, the largest medical school in the country, holds five seats for Seton Hill graduates in its Dental Program. If you are a freshman entering Seton Hill University, you can reserve one of these seats, and move forward with confidence that you can move right from undergraduate studies to dental school. Most students will spend four years at Seton Hill and four years in dental school.

Phase II - Dental School
