U.S. MEDICAL EDUCATION ACCREDITATION

Make U.S. Accreditation Work for You

Accreditation of U.S. medical education programs through the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) is one of the most important mechanisms available to improve, ensure and demonstrate quality in medical education.

We help schools prepare for LCME accreditation and reaccreditation. We also help medical schools to use accreditation standards coupled with continuous quality improvement as part of their institutional strategy for success. Wherever you are in your accreditation journey, whether just starting on reaccreditation, preparing for a site visit or grappling with challenges, we can help you make accreditation work for your institution.

LCME ACCREDITATION

Thoughtful, ongoing preparation for accreditation leads to positive outcomes. As part of our accreditation consulting we offer services that include preparation for an effective self-study, mid-cycle review, gap analysis, mock site visits and assistance with linking continuous quality improvement to accreditation.

We help institutions prepare for accreditation site visits.  We review documents, interview teams, assess readiness, and provide helpful insights that assist in the accurate and positive presentation of your program.

We also assist programs and schools in creating action plans when they are faced with challenges. Wherever you are on your accreditation journey, we can help.
