In the fall of 2018, the University of Michigan Medical School began preparing for a site visit from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME).
The LCME had planned to be on-campus in April 2020; however, the site visit was postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The virtual visit was conducted in two parts: July 8-9 and Sept.14, 2020. The Medical School sought an eight-year reaccreditation of its program toward the M.D. degree. The reaccreditation process was completed in March 2021, with UMMS receiving a full eight-year reaccreditation.
In preparation for the LCME visit, more than 200 faculty, staff and learners came together to serve on committees and contribute in other ways to the submission of more than 3,000 pages of documentation highlighting U-M’s robust medical education program.
The final package submitted to the LCME contains a self-study summary report, authored by the UMMS Self-study Task Force, which can be read HERE. In addition, a 20-student committee completed an independent student assessment, the summary report for which can be found HERE. These reports require Michigan Medicine level-2 log-in.
