With an overall goal of excellence, the Department of Medical Education has created a process to continually assess and monitor our educational programs. This process requires review and assessment of our learning environment, educational programs and the climate created by the Icahn School of Medicine students and faculty.

The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) has enhanced their regulatory environment and these requirements have necessitated the creation of a new system to integrate process improvement strategies into our medical education accreditation practice.

Since 2014, the Medical Education Performance Assessment Committee has provided the central oversight of this effort.  Our focus on the organization, structure, function, and systems that make up our educational program for the MD degree allows us to integrate a continuous quality improvement approach to compliance. This approach allows for the utilization of objective data to analyze and improve outcomes and make enhancements to existing systems and programs.  The committee is comprised of smaller groups that are targeted to specific areas such as Diversity, Admissions and Enrollment Services.

This Accreditation page will house up to date communications about our accreditation process and will provide periodic updates on the committees work and action.
