LECOM emphasizes the importance of interprofessional education in its strategic plan and its curriculum. At both the Erie and Bradenton campuses, pharmacy students pair with dental students in a dental clinic setting. When patients come into the dental clinic, a pharmacy student joins the dental student to assist in the interview and assessment. Pharmacy students take vital signs, take medication histories, and identify any potential medication concerns.
