Accreditation

The College of Medicine’s program leading to the MD degree has been accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) since 1960. The LCME, jointly sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American Medical Association, is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as an accrediting agency for medical education programs leading to the MD degree. The LCME voted to continue the College of Medicine’s MD program accreditation in 2019. Accreditation is granted for an eight-year period, and the program will undergo review for accreditation again in the 2026-2027 academic year.

Questions about the LCME accreditation status or process should be directed to Charles H. Griffith III, M.D., Vice Dean for Education, or Brandy Lawson, accreditation manager.
