LCME Institutional Self-Study

I am pleased to announce the Medical School's medical education program leading to the M.D. degree was reaccredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) for the full eight-year term. Late last week we received the official notification letter which cited many strengths and offered praise for several aspects of our program.

We should all be very proud of these results. Once again, we have demonstrated the exceptional quality of the U-M Medical School. Our program's next full survey will take place during the 2019-2020 academic year.

I offer my sincere thanks to the LCME work groups and committees who were so critical to this effort. Our success is, in no small part, due to their leadership, dedication and hard work over the past 18 months. The reaccreditation effort was incredibly valuable and we have put processes in place to leverage the experience and knowledge we gained and ensure continuous improvement of our medical student educational program.

Special thanks go to Joseph Kolars, M.D., Senior Associate Dean for Education & Global Initiatives, and Rajesh Mangrulkar, M.D., Associate Dean for Medical Student Education.  Their stewardship of the entire process was critical to its fruitful completion.

I am proud to be a part of the Michigan Medical School family.
