EVERY 3RD THURSDAY
January - October
1:30 - 3:30 PM

 

2015 SESSION DATES

Join the Co-Secretaries of the LCME on the third Thursday of each month (January - October) on the Connecting with the Secretariat call, for an interactive discussion of LCME elements and procedures. Designed to address both the specific needs of schools preparing for a survey visit, and to provide a forum for all schools to engage in a discussion about continuous quality improvement, Connecting with the Secretariat offers an off-the-record forum for asking questions and exchanging ideas.

Each two-hour session typically starts with the LCME Secretariat giving a presentation on a specific element of the month followed by a question and answer session. Callers are welcome to just listen-in to the proceedings or to actively engage in the discussion.

Connecting with the Secretariat is a forum for academic medicine professionals and is not available to the general public. Send an e-mail to lcmesubmissions@aamc.org to be added to the email distribution list and receive monthly registration information the week before each session.

2015 Spring LCME Survey Prep Workshop and ASSET Training

LCME Survey Prep Workshop

The April 2015 LCME Survey Prep Workshop is designed for schools with full survey visits in academic year 2016-17 and 2015-16. During the workshop, the LCME Secretariat will provide information about self-study preparation, survey visit logistics, the independent student analysis, and the reformatted LCME standards. This will be the same information that was presented in the 2014 Spring Survey Prep Workshop in DC, so it would be a refresher for schools that attended last year. Please send any questions about the event content to LCME staff at lcme@aamc.org and questions about registration to Jennifer Pedraza at jpedraza@aamc.org.

 

Attendance is by invitation only.
