Accreditation Visit

Next Survey Visit

The next full LCME accreditation survey visit is January 23-26, 2022.

Preparation

The preparation begins 2 years in advance starting with the population of the Data Collection Instrument (DCI). Using the DCI, the institutional self-study commences to review internal ppolicies, processes and infrastruction to determine our degree of compliance. From the self-study process, CQI projects will be developed to address any gaps in compliance that were identified. At the culmination of the self-study, the DCI will be updated to reflect the CQI project progress or completion, and an institutional self-study summary report (ISSSR) will be drafted to document the process and current status of compliance. The DCI and the ISSSR will be submitted to the LCME 3 months prior to their visit.

Survey Visit Team

A team of 5-6 members from peer medical schools will be selected to review our college. The team is led be a chair, who is typically a current or recent medical school dean, LCME Co-Secretary, or LCME member. There is also a team secretary, who is the school's liaison, and the rest a members who are drawn from a pool of experienced educators, practitioners, and administrators. The LCME will notify us of team closer to the date.
