Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) Accreditation
Formed jointly by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) in 1942, the LCME is the national accrediting agency for all U.S. and Canadian allopathic medical schools. As part of our dedication to quality, the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine commits itself to compliance with standards set by the LCME. This process promotes continual self-assessment and quality improvement. The Continuous Quality Improvement Steering Committee (CQISC) is also charged with monitoring compliance in order to improve the M.D. program and the learning environment.
Steps in the Accreditation Process
School completes the LCME data collection instrument (DCI).
Students complete the independent student analysis (ISA).
School develops self-study committees that analyze the DCI, ISA, and other information. The committees then write self-study reports and an institutional summary report.
The DCI, ISA, and institutional report are submitted to the LCME.
A survey team from the LMCE visits the school and creates a report.
Action on accreditation is taken by the LCME.
