In Summer 2018, the Medical School will begin preparations for the 2020 site visit by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the organization that provides programmatic accreditation to medical schools in the U.S. and Canada. This accreditation spans an 8-year term.
In anticipation of the 3.5-day LCME team site visit, we will conduct an 18-month self-assessment of our medical education program and its evolving curriculum to increase our awareness of our competencies and competitiveness with peer schools.
I encourage all faculty, staff and learners to participate in this process, which will provide valuable insights that will better position us for a successful site visit. Thank you for your engagement and support of these very important efforts.
