Proposed New Accreditation Standard ED-19-A
LCME accreditation standards are divided into five broad categories: Institutional Setting (IS), Educational Program for the MD Degree (ED), Medical Student (MS), Faculty (FA), and Educational Resources (ER).
The core curriculum of a medical education program must prepare medical students to function collaboratively on health care teams that include other health professionals. Members of the health care teams from other health professions may be either students or practitioners.
Data from recent LCME annual surveys indicate that a majority of medical education programs (75%) currently include required interprofessional experiences for their students.
