Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME)

Reaccreditation Site Visit: March 19-22, 2023

What is the LCME? The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) is officially recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit medical schools in the United States and Canada. It has joint oversight by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the American Medical Association (AMA) but is an independent organization.

How are we preparing for the LCME Process?

We are preparing for our LCME Site Visit scheduled for March 2023 in the following ways:

Continuous Quality Improvement

Beginning in 2015, our Continuous Quality Improvement Team has been analyzing data, working with teams throughout the School, to improve the education delivered to our students.

Quality Improvements since last visit:
  • Introduced a new clinical curriculum
  • Established our Entrustable Professional Assessments (EPAs) to provide real-time, formative feedback to our students
  • Created a regional campus at Inova in Fairfax, VA. providing our medical students the opportunity to study and practice medicine at Inova, an integrated health system serving Northern Virginia and the greater Washington, D.C., area.
  • Hired a Chief Diversity & Community Engagement Officer, Senior Associate Dean for Diversity & Inclusion

Virtual Kickoff, January 21, 2022
