2020 LCME Site Visit
The Texas A&M College of Medicine appreciates the ability to have trained more than 2,258 physicians since our start in 1977. Our dedication and commitment to training quality physicians has continued to expand as we move our mission and vision forward around the three aspects of education, research and health care delivery. Ideally, our graduates will practice within the state to improve the health and well-being of the people of Texas. A key step in our continuing endeavors and successes is to achieve ongoing accreditation through the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). We last received full accreditation in 2012 and our upcoming accreditation site visit is scheduled for February 16-19, 2020.
Our formal institutional LCME self-study kickoff is scheduled for Friday, July 20, 2018. Our LCME institutional task force has worked hard over the past six months to prepare the foundational logistics for launching our self-study process. We will have five self-study committees (Administration and Continuous Quality Improvement, Learning Environment, Money and Resources, Education and Evaluation, and Admissions and Student Affairs) with constituents from our faculty, staff, and medical students. Additionally, our Independent Student Analysis (ISA) student-led group will run simultaneously, looking at specific LCME standards with an eye toward areas of potential development and improvement.
The LCME accreditation process is one that should be embraced and seen as an opportunity for our entire College of Medicine community to grow and develop around our mission and vision. This website is devoted to keeping our Health Science Center and College of Medicine community aware of our ongoing initiatives and progress toward our upcoming LCME site visit. I look forward to working with you all of you to achieve our shared goal on ongoing accreditation and future successes.
