LCME & Accreditation

UPSOM was most recently accredited by the LCME in 2011. The accreditation process includes a comprehensive self-study process as part of the preparation for a site visit by a team of external reviewers. UPSOM, including the Office of Medical Education and Curriculum Committee, conducts on-going review and revision of the school’s educational programs and related processes.

The next site visit to UPSOM will occur in 2018-2019. Explore the links below to the read more about the LCME process in general, and the specific LCME standards that are used in the medical school accreditation process.
