Connections provides an integrated view of LCME accreditation standards designed to provide an enhanced understanding of the intent of each standard and the goals of the accreditation process. Connections ties the text of each standard to: (1) its corresponding annotation, (2) the data collection questions related to that standard, (3) the questions that the institutional self-study committee must address, and (4) the findings that survey team members must document in the survey report.

|Note: Programs that began the accreditation process using different versions of the standards, DCI (database), and self-study questions may notice some differences. This is to be expected given that schools generally start their self-study process approximately 15 months before their scheduled survey visit, and so are using the materials in place at that time.
*Until recently, the DCI was referred to as the medical education database; the LCME has adopted the more generic term "Data Collection Instrument" (or DCI).
