LCME 2020 kickoff

LCME Self-study

Since the fall of 2018, the University of Michigan Medical School has been preparing for a site visit from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME).

The LCME had planned to be on-campus in April; however, the site visit was postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic. A first virtual visit was conducted July 8-9, with a second virtual visit to occur on Sept. 14. The Medical School is seeking an eight-year reaccreditation of its program toward the M.D. degree. The reaccreditation process will be completed after a follow-up on-campus visit to be scheduled the next fall or winter.

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 level-1 log-in.
