Institutions with Developing Medical Education Programs that have Applied for Preliminary Accreditation by the LCME (Updated February 2, 2011)


Institutions with Developing Medical Education Programs
that have Applied for Preliminary Accreditation by the LCME
(Updated February 2, 2011)

A developing medical school in the United States or Canada must complete five steps to become fully accredited by the LCME, as described below. Each step has its own requirements, and a school may not recruit applicants or accept student applications before reaching Step 3. The following tables include a description of each pre-accreditation and accreditation category and a listing of medical schools currently within each category. A developing medical education program in Canada follows the same process with both the LCME and the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools (CACMS).

Refer to the LCME’s Guidelines for New and Developing Medical Schools for a description of the minimum requirements that must be met in order for the LCME and/or CACMS to consider granting provisional accreditation of a new program leading to the M.D. degree. Refer to the LCME’s Rules of Procedure for more detailed information about Preliminary Accreditation, Provisional Accreditation, and Full Accreditation.

The LCME and CACMS hold confidential all information collected during the pre-accreditation and accreditation processes. For more information on developing medical schools, please contact the schools directly.  For complete list go here: LCME List of Med Schools 20110107.  See subsequent note about CMU here.
