The LCME self-study process, like all comprehensive, constructive reviews, is intended to recognize our accomplishments and strengths, better define our weaknesses, help us plan for the future, and nurture our ability to continuously improve what we do as a school.
We have created five subcommittees, comprised of over 150 faculty, residents, students, staff, and members of the Board of Trustees, to participate in this effort. Each subcommittee will review one of the following areas of the medical school:
- Institutional Setting
- Educational Program
- Medical Student Life Cycle
- Education Resources
Subcommittees will create a report that summarizes strengths and areas for improvement based on the standards set by the LCME. In addition, it should provide an evaluation of the quality of the medical education program and the adequacy of resources to support it. The subcommittee reports will then be integrated and summarized to create the final Self-Study Report.
