LECOM to use Niagara Falls Memorial as clinical training site

Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, the nation's largest medical school, will use Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center as a clinical training site for the next 10 years.

The commitment, announced Tuesday at Niagara Falls Memorial, "will enable Memorial to virtually double the number of medical students we host annually," said Memorial President and CEO Joseph A. Ruffolo said.

LECOM students will come from the college's new Elmira campus, expected to open in July.

LECOM "is steadfastly committed to developing an ever-increasing number of clinical training sites for its students in medically underserved regions of New York State, such as in Niagara County," said Dr. Richard Terry, associate dean of academic affairs at LECOM Elmira.
