Countless faculty, staff and learners led an almost-three year journey of self-discovery and quality improvement
The Medical School has received full, 8-year reaccreditation of its M.D. degree from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME).
Countless faculty, staff and learners led an almost-three year journey of self-discovery and quality improvement. This includes medical students, who were very active in the M.D. reaccreditation process, and created an independent student assessment that is proving very valuable to planning for the future. The LCME survey visit team provided a thoughtful critique of our M.D. program, and also was flexible in working with our teams during the COVID-19 pandemic, when the planned site visit changed from on-campus meetings to virtual gatherings.
The LCME did issue a few citations in areas that need improvement, but leadership is actively addressing them in an effort to improve the medical student experience. The number of citations were better than the national average for our peer medical schools; that being said, leadership takes this feedback very seriously and are using it to continue to improve as a school.
The entire reaccreditation process has been an academic community-wide effort led by fabulous teams working with outstanding people and groups across the medical school and health system, all committed to our mission to make our great school even better.
