LCME Accreditation

white coat day audienceTulane University School of Medicine will host an LCME (Liaison Committee on Medical Education) Accreditation Site Visit team January 13-16, 2019. The LCME is the official accrediting body of medical education programs leading to the MD degree in the U.S. and Canada.

Tulane School of Medicine participated in its last accreditation site visit in 2011.  Part of our preparation includes an extensive Self-Study, which faculty, students, and others who contribute to our medical education program are engaged in supporting.  This process provides an excellent opportunity to review all aspects of the School for quality assurance and continuous improvement.

This site will provide regular updates on our preparation for accreditation.

L. Lee Hamm, III, MD, FACP
Senior Vice President and Dean of the School of Medicine
