We also offer more than 25 accelerated programs in conjunction with medical, dental, veterinary, and pharmacy schools. These programs include a 4+4 early acceptance dental medicine, a 3+4 and 4+4 early acceptance medicine, and 2+3/2+4, 3+3/3+4, and 4+3/4+4 early acceptance pharmacy programs with the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. Our accelerated program offerings and customized curricula will help you become a competitive professional school applicant and meet meaningful, in-demand careers.

Gannon University’s expansion to Ruskin, Floida, meant additional graduate-level program offerings in the rehabilitative sciences. The entry-level Occupational Therapy Doctorate or Doctor of Physical Therapy allows you to conveniently begin your education with a bachelor’s degree at the Erie campus before transferring to Ruskin to pursue your doctoral degree.

Programs such as nursing, radiologic sciences, and respiratory care have placement rates for graduates at or near 100%, and many of our students have job offers to choose from before graduation.

Classrooms get real
Here at Gannon, we emphasize a healthy blend of classroom teaching and real-world experience. 

Students can study tropical marine biology in the Bahamas or occupational therapy in Ecuador. Others participate in our student-run pro bono pediatric occupational therapy or adult physical therapy clinics and conduct research alongside faculty in the lab, field, or clinical environment.

The Human Performance Laboratory is a unique resource for physical therapy, sport and exercise science, human performance, occupational therapy, and biomedical engineering students to explore motion analysis using advanced technology. Students can also study in the 5,800-square-foot Patient Simulation Center, the largest in the region. Other students pursue aquatic research opportunities on Lake Erie aboard the 53-foot-vessel, the Environaut.

An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “The academics at Gannon prepared me very well for my future career. Beginning in August, I’ll be attending Campbell University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine. I was able to achieve that due to Gannon University’s academic rigor. I gained valuable experience at Gannon through research and being a lab assistant. These experiences opened doors for me to have internships and fellowships at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh. Overall, Gannon has helped me become a very well-rounded individual, and I’ll be able to use what I’ve learned at Gannon throughout my career as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.”
