Upcoming Events

Connecting with the Secretariat - Every 3rd Thursday, 1:30 - 3:30 PM (EDT)

Join the Co-Secretaries of the LCME for monthly interactive Q&A call-in sessions 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. Members of the Secretariat field questions throughout the call and lead participants through exercises designed to illustrate the underlying intent of frequently cited standards. Callers are welcome to just listen-in to the proceedings or to actively engage in the discussion.

Survey Prep Workshops

The LCME will hold two separate survey prep workshops in Spring 2014 for schools with survey visits in the 2014-15 academic year and those with visits in the 2015-16 academic year. Both workshops will feature sessions on completing the DCI (formerly medical education database), self-study preparation, survey visit logistics, and the independent student analysis, as well as case study activities designed to demonstrate the intent of frequently cited standards. Both workshops will also feature breakout sessions for Faculty Accreditation Leads and Staff Visit Coordinators.

The 2015-2016 Survey Prep Workshop will focus specifically on the reformatted LCME standards and will provide one-on-one training on ASSET, the web-based accreditation tool that schools with visits after September 2015 will use to prepare and submit accreditation materials.
