LCME Accreditation


Dean Richard L. PageA Message from Dean Richard L. Page, M.D.

The countdown to the LCME site visit has begun! The Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) will be performing a site visit April 11-14, 2021, as part of the reaccreditation survey of the Larner College of Medicine. This once-every-eight-year event is critical to our very existence, certifying that our medical education program meets prescribed standards for all U.S. and Canadian medical schools. Our last site visit was in 2013, when the College received a full reaccreditation. As part of the current process, over these next 18 months we will conduct a self-study to critically examine our curriculum, resources, procedures, faculty and students. 

We are now embarking on this first step in the reaccreditation. This stage of self-study will allow us to examine every facet of our college of medicine. This is not just an opportunity to find ways to be better during this time of self-study; we have created a Committee for Continuous Quality Improvement in order to maintain a culture of ongoing learning and improvement for the years to come. 

In order to conduct our self-study, and to prepare for our LCME site visit, we need the full engagement of the Larner community. Together, we will study, learn, organize and improve, as we continue our aspiration to provide a medical education that is second to none. Thank you in advance for your engagement during this exciting journey.

Richard L. Page, M.D.
